AB - We consider a nonlinear elliptic equation of the form div [a(∇u)] + F[u] = 0 on a domain Ω, subject to a Dirichlet boundary condition tru = φ. We do not assume that the higher order term a satisfies growth conditions from above. We prove the existence of continuous solutions either when Ω is convex and φ satisfies a one-sided bounded slope condition, or when ais radial: $a(\xi )={l(|\xi |)}{|\xi |} \xi $ a ( ξ ) = l ( | ξ | ) | ξ | ξ for some increasingl:ℝ+ → ℝ+.
