Polynomial solutions of linear partial differential equations
Eugenia N. Petropoulou Panayiotis D. Siafarikas
In this paper it is proved that the condition

$\lambda=a_1 (n-2)(n-1)+\gamma_1 (m-2)(m-1)+\beta_1 (n-1)(m-1)+\delta_1 (n-1)+\epsilon_1 (m-1),$

where $n=1,2,...,N$, $m=1,2,...,M$ is a necessary and sufficient condition for the linear partial differential equation

$(a_1x^2+a_2x+a_3)u_{x x}+(\beta_1xy+\beta_2x+\beta_3y+\beta_4)u_{x y} $

$+(\gamma_1y^2+\gamma_2y+\gamma_3)u_{y y}+(\delta_1x+\delta_2)u_x+(\epsilon_1y+\epsilon_2)u_y=\lambda u, $

where $a_i$, $\beta_j$, $\gamma_i$, $\delta_s$, $\epsilon_s$, $i=1,2,3$, $j=1,2,3,4$, $s=1,2$ are real or complex constants, to have polynomial solutions of the form

$u(x,y)=\sum_{n=1}^N\sum_{m=1}^Mu_{n m}x^{n-1}y^{m-1}.$

The proof of this result is obtained using a functional analytic method which reduces the problem of polynomial solutions of such partial differential equations to an eigenvalue problem of a specific linear operator in an abstract Hilbert space. The main result of this paper generalizes previously obtained results by other researchers.

On some difference equations with exponential nonlinearity
Eugenia N. Petropoulou

The problem of the existence of complex $\ell_1$ solutions of two difference equations with exponential nonlinearity is studied, one of which is nonautonomous. As a consequence, several information are obtained regarding the asymptotic stability of their equilibrium points, as well as the corresponding generating function and $z-$ transform of their solutions. The results, which are obtained using a general theorem based on a functional-analytic technique, provide also a rough estimate of the region of attraction of each equilibrium point for the autonomous case. When restricted to real solutions, the results are compared with other recently published results.
