Research Abstract 
Concerning the global behavior of solutions of nonlinear equations, Kusano, Naito, Kura and Oharu have obtained the following results: for entire solutions of certain second and higher order semilinear or quasilinear elliptic equations, the structure of positive solutions and the oscillation theory such as the number of zeros of spherically symmetric solutions can be clarified by using the results and methods for similar ordinary differential equations; the supersolutionsubsolution method can be applied to higher order elliptic equations; the existence of positive solutions with various asymptotic behaviors and their construction method for the pLaplace equation in an exterior domain, the oscillation properties of solutions of parabolic functional partial differential equations with oscillating coefficients. On the other hand, Shiba and Masumoto investigated the continuation problem of Riemann surfaces; potential theoretic realization problems as well as relations with classical function theory. They have given estimates of the span of an open Riemann surface of genus 1, some new results on extrenal problems for the exterior problem by parallel treatment of the cases of genus 0 and 1 and relations between some conformal distances and the hyperbolic distance. The head investigator has shown the following: in the theory of harmonic spaces, which provides a unified potential theoretic treatment of the theory of elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, if its dual structure is defined in terms of measure representations, we can derive Green's formulae and furthermore, on more general balayage spaces, duality of two structures can be defined in the same way.
