Exact multiplicity of positive solutions for concave-convex and convex-concave nonlinearitiesJournal of Differential Equations (2014)
In this paper the authors study exact multiplicity of positive solutions of the two-point boundary value problem
They also study the linearized problem corresponding to this problem:
Lemma 2.1 gives the connection between critical points (λ,u) of problem (1) and a nontrivial solution of the corresponding problem for w. Lemma 2.2 and Theorem 2.1 are results from previous work. The main result is Theorem 2.2, which has two parts (when f is convex-concave and when it is concave-convex) and gives conditions under which the global solution curve admits at most two turns at critical points. Theorem 2.3, Theorem 2.4, Theorem 2.5 and Theorem 2.6 are corollaries of Theorem 2.2.
This paper is correct and has new results in this theory.
