Qualitative Properties and Existence of Sign Changing Solutions with Compact Support for an Equation with a p-Laplace Operator

Jean Dolbeault, Marta García-Huidobro and Raul Manasevich


We consider radial solutions of an elliptic equation involving the p-Laplace operator and prove by a shooting method the existence of compactly supported solutions with any prescribed number of nodes. The method is based on a change of variables in the phase plane corresponding to an asymptotic Hamiltonian system and provides qualitative properties of the solutions.
