Existence and multiplicity for radially symmetric solutions to Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations

Xiaoyan Li, Bian-Xia Yang

This article concerns the existence and multiplicity of radially symmetric nodal solutions to the nonlinear equation

where $\mathcal{M}_\mathcal{C}^{\pm}$ are general Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman operators, μ is a real parameter and $\mathcal{B}$ is the unit ball. By using bifurcation theory, we determine the range of parameter μ in which the above problem has one or multiple nodal solutions according to the behavior of f at 0 and infinity, and whether f satisfies the signum condition f(s)s>0 for $s\neq0$ or not.
