Multiple solutions of the fourth‐order emden‐fowler equation

    I. Yermachenko Affiliation


Two‐point boundary value problems for the fourth‐order Emden‐Fowler equation are considered. If the given equation can be reduced to a quasi‐linear one with a non‐resonant linear part so that both equations are equivalent in some domain D, and if solution of the quasi‐linear problem is located in D, then the original problem has a solution. We show that a quasi‐linear problem has a solution of definite type which corresponds to the type of the linear part. If quasilinearization is possible for essentially different linear parts, then the original problem has multiple solutions.
