The existence of countably many positive solutions for a system of nonlinear singular boundary value problems with the $$p$$-Laplacian operator. (English) Zbl 1108.34015
Summary: We study the existence of countable many positive solutions for a class of nonlinear singular boundary value problems with $$p$$-Laplacian operator
$\begin{cases} \bigl(\varphi_{p_1}(u')\bigr)'+a_1(t)f(u,v)=0,\quad & 0<t<1,\\ \bigl( \varphi_{p_2}(u')\bigr)'+a_2(t)g(u,v)=0,\quad & 0<t<1, \end{cases}$
$\begin{cases} \alpha_1\varphi_{p_1}\bigl(u(0)\bigr)-\beta_1 \varphi_{p_1}\bigl(u'(0)\bigr)=0, \quad & \gamma_1\varphi_{p_1}\bigl( u(1)\bigr)+\delta_1\varphi_{p_1}\bigl(u'(1) \bigr)=0,\\ \alpha_2 \varphi_{p_2}\bigl(v(0)\bigr)-\beta_2\varpi_{p_2}\bigl(v'(0) \bigr)=0, \quad & \gamma_2\varphi_{p_2}\bigl(v(1)\bigr)+\delta_2\varphi_{p_2} \bigl(v'(1)\bigr)=0,\end{cases}$
where $$\varphi_{p_1}(s)=|s|^{p_i-2} s$$, $$p_i>1$$, $$f,g$$ are lower semi-continuous functions and $$a_1(t)$$ has countable many singularities on $$(0,1/2)$$, $$i=1,2$$. By using the fixed-point theorem of cone expansion and compression of norm type, the existence of countable many positive solutions for the nonlinear singular boundary value problem with $$p$$-Laplacian operator are obtained.
