Stationary Kirchhoff equations and systems with reaction terms

Abstract

In this paper, the operator approach based on the fixed point principles of Banach and Schaefer is used to establish the existence of solutions to stationary Kirchhoff equations with reaction terms. Next, for a coupled system of Kirchhoff equations, it is proved that under suitable assumptions, there exists a unique solution which is a Nash equilibrium with respect to the energy functionals associated to the equations of the system. Both global Nash equilibrium, in the whole space, and local Nash equilibrium, in balls are established. The solution is obtained by using an iterative process based on Ekeland’s variational principle and whose development simulates a noncooperative game..
