Bifurcation for some semilinear elliptic equations when the linearization has no eigenvalues

Comment.Math.Univ.Carolinae 34,1 (1993) 125-138.

Abstract:We prove existence and bifurcation results for a semilinear eigenvalue problem in $\Bbb R^N$ $(N\geq 2)$, where the linearization --- $\vartriangle $ has no eigenvalues. In particular, we show that under rather weak assumptions on the coefficients $\lambda =0$ is a bifurcation point for this problem in $H^1, H^2$ and $L^p$ $(2\leq p\leq \infty )$.

Keywords: bifurcation point, variational method, eigenvalues, exponential decay, standing waves
