內容介紹:In this talk, in order to find more solutions to a nonvariational quasilinear  PDE, a new augmented singular transform (AST) is developed to form a barrier  surrounding previously found solutions so that an algorithm search from outside  cannot pass the barrier and penetrate into the inside to reach a previously  found solution. Thus a solution found by the algorithm must be new. Mathematical  justifications of AST are established. A partial Newton-correction method is  designed accordingly to solve the augmented problem and to satisfy a constraint  in AST. The new method is applied to numerically investigate bifurcation,  symmetry-breaking phenomena to a nonvariational quasilinear elliptic equation  through finding multiple solutions.
