 A conference was organized to discuss research in variational methods as applied to nonlinear elliptic PDE. This volume resulted from that gathering. Included are both survey and research papers that address important open questions and offer suggestions on analytical and numerical techniques for solving those open problems. It is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in elliptic partial differential equations.
