A fixed point method for nonlinear equations involving a duality mapping defined on product spaces

Jenica Cringanu, Daniel Pasca

The aim of this paper is to obtain solutions for the equation
 J_{q,p} (u_1,u_2) =N_{f,g}(u_1,u_2),
where $J_{q,p}$ is the duality mapping on a product of two real, reflexive and smooth Banach spaces $X_1, X_2$, corresponding to the gauge functions $\varphi_1(t)=t^{q-1}$, $\varphi_2(t)=t^{p-1}$, $1<q, p<\infty$, $N_{f,g}$ being the Nemytskii operator generated by the Caratheodory functions f,g which satisfies some appropriate conditions. To prove the existence solutions we use a topological method via Leray-Schauder degree. As applications, we obtained in a unitary manner some existence results for Dirichlet and Neumann problems for systems with (q,p)-Laplacian, with (q,p)-pseudo-Laplacian or with $(A_q, A_p)$-Laplacian.
