Research Abstract 
1) The pLaplace operators is well known as the nonlinear modification of the usual Laplacian. These operators or their perturbed operators arise in the model equations for the elastic membrane, nonlinear diffusion phenomena and so on. Moreover, the limit state of solutions at p infinity is of great interest from the mathematical or technological view points. The eigenvalue problem of pLaplacian has been studied by many authors. Since this problem can be dealt with as a variational problem, many results has been known. However, its limit problem at p infinity had been known because it cannot be described in a variatinal problem. We formulate such problem using the notion of the viscosity solution and obtain some results for the limit eigenvalues and the associate eigenfunctions. 2) In the ecological model, a reactiondiffusion equation has the nonlinear diffusion with the pLaplace operator when the diffusion depends on the population pressure nonlinearly. Yamada has studied such equation and obtain the unique and global existence of a solution and sonic results on the set of stationary solutions. He also study the 3 species cooperative competitiondiffusion systems with linear diffusion, and obtain the necessary and sufficient condition to the existence of the coexistence solutions. 3) Murakami has studied the asymptotic behavior of the solution for several higher dimensional delay differential equations and obtain the existence of periodic solutions which are bifurcated from the equilibrium, in particular, the explicit expressions of the bifurcated periodic solutions. 4) Kohda has obtained some conditions on initial value for parabolic problem which guarantee the blowup of a solution. Moreover, he had shown the behavior of blowup solution near blowup time, that is blowup patterns.
