Title: Inverse spectral problems for nonlinear Sturm-Liouville problems
Author: Tetsutaro Shibata (Hiroshima Univ., Higashi-Hiroshima, Japan)
Abstract:
This paper concerns the nonlinear Sturm-Liouville problem
$$
-u''(t) + f(u(t)) = \lambda u(t), \quad u(t) > 0, \quad t \in I
:= (0, 1), \quad u(0) = u(1) = 0,
$$
where $\lambda $ is a positive parameter. We try to determine the
nonlinear term $f(u)$ by means of the global behavior of the
bifurcation branch of the positive solutions in
$\mathbb{R}_+ \times L^2(I)$.
