Degenerate stationary problems with homogeneous boundary conditions

Kaouther Ammar, Hicham Redwane

We are interested in the degenerate problem
 b(v)-\hbox{ div}a(v,\nabla g(v))=f
with the homogeneous boundary condition $g(v)=0$ on some part of the boundary. The vector field $a$ is supposed to satisfy the Leray-Lions conditions and the functions $b,g$ to be continuous, nondecreasing and to verify the normalization condition $b(0)=g(0)=0$ and the range condition $R(b+g)=\mathbb{R}$. Using monotonicity methods, we prove existence and comparison results for renormalized entropy solutions in the $L^1$ setting.
