A weak comparison principle for some quasilinear elliptic operators: it compares functions belonging to different spaces

Akihito Unai (2018)

Applications of Mathematics

We shall prove a weak comparison principle for quasilinear elliptic operators - div ( a ( x , u ) ) that includes the negative p -Laplace operator, where a : Ω × N N satisfies certain conditions frequently seen in the research of quasilinear elliptic operators. In our result, it is characteristic that functions which are compared belong to different spaces.

Bifurcation theorems for nonlinear problems with lack of compactness

Francesca Faraci, Roberto Livrea (2003)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

We deal with a bifurcation result for the Dirichlet problem ⎧ - Δ p u = μ / | x | p | u | p - 2 u + λ f ( x , u ) a.e. in Ω, ⎨ ⎩ u | Ω = 0 . Starting from a weak lower semicontinuity result by E. Montefusco, which allows us to apply a general variational principle by B. Ricceri, we prove that, for μ close to zero, there exists a positive number λ * μ such that for every λ ] 0 , λ * μ [ the above problem admits a nonzero weak solution u λ in W 1 , p ( Ω ) satisfying l i m λ 0 | | u λ | | = 0 .

Boundary blow-up solutions for a cooperative system involving the p-Laplacian

Li Chen, Yujuan Chen, Dang Luo (2013)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

We study necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of nonnegative boundary blow-up solutions to the cooperative system Δ p u = g ( u - α v ) , Δ p v = f ( v - β u ) in a smooth bounded domain of N , where Δ p is the p-Laplacian operator defined by Δ p u = d i v ( | u | p - 2 u ) with p > 1, f and g are nondecreasing, nonnegative C¹ functions, and α and β are two positive parameters. The asymptotic behavior of solutions near the boundary is obtained and we get a uniqueness result for p = 2.

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

A 3D-2D dimension reduction for −Δ1 is obtained. A power law approximation from −Δp as p → 1 in terms of Γ-convergence, duality and asymptotics for least gradient functions has also been provided.

Elhoussine Azroul, Abdelkrim Barbara, Mohamed Badr Benboubker, Hassane Hjiaj (2014)

Applicationes Mathematicae

We study a class of anisotropic nonlinear elliptic equations with variable exponent p⃗(·) growth. We obtain the existence of entropy solutions by using the truncation technique and some a priori estimates.

Estimates of the principal eigenvalue of the p -Laplacian and the p -biharmonic operator

Jiří Benedikt (2015)

Mathematica Bohemica

We survey recent results concerning estimates of the principal eigenvalue of the Dirichlet p -Laplacian and the Navier p -biharmonic operator on a ball of radius R in N and its asymptotics for p approaching 1 and . Let p tend to . There is a critical radius R C of the ball such that the principal eigenvalue goes to for 0 < R R C and to 0 for R > R C . The critical radius is R C = 1 for any N for the p -Laplacian and R C = 2 N in the case of the p -biharmonic operator. When p approaches 1 , the principal eigenvalue of the Dirichlet...

Existence and nonexistence of solutions for a singular elliptic problem with a nonlinear boundary condition

Zonghu Xiu, Caisheng Chen (2013)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

We consider the existence and nonexistence of solutions for the following singular quasi-linear elliptic problem with concave and convex nonlinearities: ⎧ - d i v ( | x | - a p | u | p - 2 u ) + h ( x ) | u | p - 2 u = g ( x ) | u | r - 2 u , x ∈ Ω, ⎨ ⎩ | x | - a p | u | p - 2 u / ν = λ f ( x ) | u | q - 2 u , x ∈ ∂Ω, where Ω is an exterior domain in N , that is, Ω = N D , where D is a bounded domain in N with smooth boundary ∂D(=∂Ω), and 0 ∈ Ω. Here λ > 0, 0 ≤ a < (N-p)/p, 1 < p< N, ∂/∂ν is the outward normal derivative on ∂Ω. By the variational method, we prove the existence of multiple solutions. By the test function method,...

Existence of solutions for a class of Kirchhoff type problems in Orlicz-Sobolev spaces

Nguyen Thanh Chung (2015)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

We consider Kirchhoff type problems of the form ⎧ -M(ρ(u))(div(a(|∇u|)∇u) - a(|u|)u) = K(x)f(u) in Ω ⎨ ⎩ ∂u/∂ν = 0 on ∂Ω where Ω N , N ≥ 3, is a smooth bounded domain, ν is the outward unit normal to ∂Ω, ρ ( u ) = Ω ( Φ ( | u | ) + Φ ( | u | ) ) d x , M: [0,∞) → ℝ is a continuous function, K L ( Ω ) , and f: ℝ → ℝ is a continuous function not satisfying the Ambrosetti-Rabinowitz type condition. Using variational methods, we obtain some existence and multiplicity results.
