Bounded solutions to the Allen–Cahn equation with level sets of any compact topology

Alberto Enciso and Daniel Peralta-Salas

Vol. 9 (2016), No. 6, 1433–1446
Abstract

We make use of the flexibility of infinite-index solutions to the Allen–Cahn equation to show that, given any compact hypersurface Σ of d with d 3, there is a bounded entire solution of the Allen–Cahn equation on d whose zero level set has a connected component diffeomorphic (and arbitrarily close) to a rescaling of Σ. More generally, we prove the existence of solutions with a finite number of compact connected components of prescribed topology in their zero level sets.
