Nonlinear boundary value problems involving the extrinsic mean curvature operator

Jean Mawhin (2014)

Mathematica Bohemica

The paper surveys recent results obtained for the existence and multiplicity of radial solutions of Dirichlet problems of the type · v 1 - | v | 2 = f ( | x | , v ) in B R , u = 0 on B R , where B R is the open ball of center 0 and radius R in n , and f is continuous. Comparison is made with similar results for the Laplacian. Topological and variational methods are used and the case of positive solutions is emphasized. The paper ends with the case of a general domain.

Separable solutions of quasilinear Lane–Emden equations

Alessio Porretta, Laurent Véron (2013)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

For 0 < p - 1 < q and either ϵ = 1 or ϵ = - 1 , we prove the existence of solutions of - Δ p u = ϵ u q in a cone C S , with vertex 0 and opening S , vanishing on C S , of the form u ( x ) = x - β ω ( x / x ) . The problem reduces to a quasilinear elliptic equation on S and the existence proof is based upon degree theory and homotopy methods. We also obtain a nonexistence result in some critical case by making use of an integral type identity.
