On the singular generalized Fisher-like equation with derivative depending nonlinearity. (English) Zbl 1183.34039
The existence and multiplicity of positive solutions for the second-order nonlinear boundary value problem
$-y'' + cy' + \lambda y= m(x) f(x,y(x),y'(x)), \quad x\in (0,+\infty),$
$y(0)=y_0, \;y(+\infty)=0$ is investigated, where $$c,\lambda$$ are positive parameters, $$m$$ and $$f$$ are continuous functions. The term $$m$$ may exhibit a singularity at the origin, while $$f$$ is assumed to have a polynomial growth. Some examples and numerical computations are also presented. In order to obtain a priori estimates of the solutions, which can be non-monotone, recent fixed-point theorems on cones of Banach spaces are used.
