Positive radial solutions for Dirichlet problems via a Harnack-type inequality

Abstract

We deal with the existence and localization of positive radial solutions for Dirichlet problems involving \(\phi\)-Laplacian operators in a ball. In particular, \(p\)-Laplacian and Minkowski-curvature equations are considered.

Our approach relies on fixed point index techniques, which work thanks to a Harnack-type inequality in terms of a seminorm. As a consequence of the localization result, it is also derived the existence of several (even infinitely many) positive solutions.
