One-dimensional elliptic equation with concave and convex nonlinearities. (English) Zbl 0955.34013

The authors study the Dirichlet boundary value problem \[ -(|u'|^{m- 2}u')'= \lambda u^q+ u^p,\quad u(0)= u(1),\tag{1} \] with \(0\leq q< m-1< p\), \(\lambda> 0\), and using shooting methods, they obtain the exact number of solutions to (1) as well as their asymptotic behavior for small parameter \(\lambda\). For a particular case of (1) such results were reached by I. Addou and A. Benmezaï [Electron. J. Differ. Equ. 1999, Paper No. 9, 29 p. (1999; Zbl 0923.34024)]. The techniques developed there are used in the paper under review, as well.
