On necessary conditions for the Comparison Principle and the Sub and Supersolutions Method for the stationary Kirchhoff Equation

30 Oct 2017  ·  Iturriaga Leonelo, Massa Eugenio ·

In this paper we propose a counterexample to the validity of the Comparison Principle and of the Sub and Supersolution Method for nonlocal problems like the stationary Kirchhoff Equation. This counterexample shows that in general smooth bounded domains in any dimension, these properties cannot hold true if the nonlinear nonlocal term $M(\|u\|^2)$ is somewhere increasing with respect to the $H_0^1$-norm of the solution... Comparing with existing results, this fills a gap between known conditions on $M$ that guarantee or prevent these properties, and leads to a condition which is necessary and sufficient for the validity of the Comparison Principle. read more
