An existence result for \(( p , q )\)-Laplace equations involving sandwich-type and critical growth. (English) Zbl 1445.35183
Summary: We investigate the existence of a nontrivial nonnegative solution to \(( p , q )\)-Laplace equations involving two nonlinear terms, one grows as \(s\) with \(q < s < p\) and the other possibly has critical growth. This interesting case cannot be appeared in single \(m\)-Laplace equations and has not been studied under even the subcritical growth. Our argument is based on the concentration-compactness principle by P. L. Lions and the Ekeland variational principle.
