Radial solutions for some classes of elliptic boundary value problems


The aim of this paper is to present some existence and localization results of radial solutions for elliptic equations and systems on an annulus \(\Omega\) of \(\mathbb{R}^{N}\left( N\geq1\right) \) of radii a and b with \(0<a<b\). The main toolis Schauder’s fixed point theorem.
