Degree Calculations — The Hilbert Space Case
- 280 Downloads
In this chapter, we consider situations in addition to those in Chapter 3, in which we can calculate the degrees of the operators in the homogenized variational inequalities (3.6). We find conditions that guarantee a change of degree as λ varies. Together with Theorem 3.2, these conditions, then, will imply the existence of global, nontrivial solution continua for (3.1), which bifurcate from the trivial solution.
