Multiplicity results for classes of singular problems on an exterior domain

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We study radial positive solutions to the singular boundary value problem \begin{equation*} \begin{cases} -\Delta_p u = \lambda K(|x|)\frac{f(u)}{u^\beta} \quad \mbox{in}~ \Omega,\\ ~~~u(x) = 0 \qquad \qquad \qquad \qquad~~\mbox{if}~|x|=r_0,\\ ~~~u(x) \rightarrow 0 \qquad\qquad \qquad \mbox{if}~|x|\rightarrow \infty, \end{cases} \end{equation*} where $\Delta_p u =$ div $(|\nabla u|^{p-2}\nabla u)$, $1 < p < N, N >2, \lambda > 0, 0 \leq \beta <1 ,\Omega= \{ x \in \mathbb{R}^{N} : |x| > r_0 \}$ and $ r_0 >0$. Here $f:[0, \infty)\rightarrow (0, \infty)$ is a continuous nondecreasing function such that $\lim_{u\rightarrow \infty} \frac{f(u)}{u^{\beta+p-1}}= 0$ and $ K \in C( (r_0, \infty),(0, \infty) ) $ is such that $\int_{r_0}^{\infty} r^\mu K(r) dr < \infty, $ for some $\mu > p-1$. We establish the existence of multiple positive solutions for certain range of $\lambda$ when $f$ satisfies certain additional assumptions. A simple model that will satisfy our hypotheses is $f(u)=e^{\frac{\alpha u}{\alpha+u}}$ for $ \alpha \gg 1.$ We also extend our results to classes of systems when the nonlinearities satisfy a combined sublinear condition at infinity. We prove our results by the method of sub-super solutions.
