Boundary Value Problems for Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations

Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 73)


Here we begin the study of the strong maximum principle and the compact support principle for divergence structure inequalities, especially of the canonical form
$$ div\left\{ {A\left( {\left| {Du} \right|} \right)\left. {Du} \right)} \right\} - f\left( u \right) \leqslant 0,u \geqslant 0. $$
In general, the results described cannot be obtained from the nonlinear theorems of the previous chapters, since equation (4.1.1) has specialized properties which are crucially used.
