This paper deals with the quasilinear elliptic equation
more precisely, existence and uniqueness of local solutions satisfying
and other properties are the main goals here. These kinds of functions are called explosive solutions. No behaviour at the boundary to be prescribed is a priori imposed. However, we are going to show that, under an adequate strong interior structure condition on the equation, explosive behaviour near cannot be arbitrary. In fact, there exists a unique such singular character governed by a uniform rate of explosion depending only on the terms , , and .
