Title: Local "superlinearity" and "sublinearity" for the p-Laplacian
Author: de Figueiredo, DG

Abstract: We study the existence, nonexistence and multiplicity of positive solutions for a family of problems -Delta(p)u = f(lambda)(x, u), u is an element of W-0(1,p)(Omega), where Omega is a bounded domain n R-N, N > p, and lambda > 0 is a parameter. The family we consider includes the well-known nonlinearities of Ambrosetti-Brezis-Cerami type in a more general form, namely lambda a(x)u(q) + b(x)u(r), where 0 <= q < p - 1 < r <= p* - 1. Here the coefficient a(x) is assumed to be nonnegative but b(x) is allowed to change sign, even in the critical case. Preliminary results of independent interest include the extension to the p-Laplacian context of the Brezis-Nirenberg results on local minimization in W-0(1,p) and C-0(1), a C-1,C-alpha estimate for equations of the form -Delta(p)u = h(x, u) which h of critical growth, a strong comparison result for the p-Laplacian, and a variational approach to the method of upper-lower solutions for the p-Laplacian.
