Unbounded positive solutions for second order singular boundary value problems with derivative dependence on infinite intervals. (English) Zbl 1158.34011
Summary: The existence of at least one unbounded positive solution and the existence of multiple unbounded positive solutions are established for the singular second-order boundary value problem
$p(t)^{-1}(p(t)x^\prime (t))^\prime +\varPhi(t)f(t,x,px^\prime)=0, 0<t<+\infty,$ $x(0)=0, \lim_{t\to+\infty}p(t)x^\prime (t)=0,$ using the fixed point index, where $$f$$ may be singular at $$px^\prime =0$$.
