Periodic Solutions of Systems with p-Laplacian-like Operators

  • Jean Mawhin
Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 43)


A great deal of attention has recently been given to extending spectral, bifurcation or existence results for semilinear equations of the second order, in both ordinary and partial differential cases, to the case of nonlinear perturbations of the so-called p-Laplacian operator, defined by, or of some suitable generalization.
