#### Abstract

This paper investigates the following -Laplacian equations with exponential nonlinearities: in , as , where is called -Laplacian, . The asymptotic behavior of boundary blow-up solutions is discussed, and the existence of boundary blow-up solutions is given.

#### 1. Introduction

The study of differential equations and variational problems with nonstandard -growth conditions is a new and interesting topic. On the background of this class of problems, we refer to [1β3]. Many results have been obtained on this kind of problems, for example, [4β18]. On the regularity of weak solutions for differential equations with nonstandard -growth conditions, we refer to [4, 5, 8]. On the existence of solutions for -Laplacian equation Dirichlet problems in bounded domain, we refer to [7, 9, 15, 18]. In this paper, we consider the following -Laplacian equations with exponential nonlinearities

where and is a bounded radial domain (). Our aim is to give the asymptotic behavior and the existence of boundary blow-up solutions for problem (P).

Throughout the paper, we assume that , , and satisfy the following.

(H_{1}) is radial and satisfies

(H_{2}) is radial with respect to , is increasing, and for any .

(H_{3})β is continuous and satisfies

where , are positive constants and .

(H_{4}) is a radial nonnegative function, and there exists a constant such that

where and are positive constants and and are Lipschitz continuous on , which satisfy for any .

The operator is called -Laplacian. Specifically, if (a constant), (P) is the well-known -Laplacian problem. If can be represented as , on the boundary blow-up solutions for the following -Laplacian equations ( is a constant):

we refer to [19β26], and the following generalized Keller-Osserman condition is crucial

but the typical form of -Laplacian equation is

and there are some differences between the results of (1.4) and (1.6) (see [16]).

On the boundary blow-up solutions for the following -Laplacian equations with exponential nonlinearities ( is a constant):

we refer to [20β22], but the results on the boundary blow-up solutions for -Laplacian equations are rare (see [16]).

In [16], the present author discussed the existence and asymptotic behavior of boundary blow-up solutions for the following -Laplacian equations:

on the condition that satisfies polynomial growth condition.

If is a function, the typical form of (P) is the following:

and the method to construct subsolution and supersolution in [16] cannot give the exact asymptotic behavior of solutions for (P). Our results partially generalized the results of [20β22].

Because of the nonhomogeneity of -Laplacian, -Laplacian problems are more complicated than those of -Laplacian ones (see [10]); another difficulty of this paper is that cannot be represented as .

#### 2. Preliminary

In order to deal with -Laplacian problems, we need some theories on the spaces , and properties of -Laplacian, which we will use later (see [6, 11]). Let

We can introduce the norm on by

The space (, ) becomes a Banach space. We call it generalized Lebesgue space. The space (, ) is a separable, reflexive, and uniform convex Banach space (see [6, Theorems 1.10, 1.14] ).

The space is defined by

and it can be equipped with the norm

is the closure of in . and are separable, reflexive, and uniform convex Banach spaces (see [6, Theorem 2.1]).

If , is called a blow-up solution of (P) when it satisfies

for any domain , and for every positive integer .

Let there is an open domain such that , and define as

Lemma 2.1 (see [9, Theorem 3.1]). *Let , and . Then, is strictly monotone.*

Letting , if , with a.e. in , then denote in ; correspondingly, if in , then denote in .

*Definition 2.2. *Let . If in , then is called a weak supersolution (weak subsolution) of (P).

Copying the proof of [14], we have the following.

Lemma 2.4 (see [8, Theorem 1.1]). *Under the conditions (H) and (H), if is a bounded weak solution of in , then , where is a constant.*

#### 3. Asymptotic Behavior of Boundary Blow-Up Solutions

If is a radial solution for (P), then (P) can be transformed into

It means that is increasing.

Theorem 3.1. *If satisfies

Obviously, for any positive constant , we have .

When , we have

Thus, when is small enough, from (3.5) and (3.8), for uniformly, we have

Thus, when is small enough, the following inequality is valid for uniformly:

Obviously, if is small enough, then is large enough. Since ,

Thus,

Obviously,

For any , we can see that is a subsolution for (P) on . According to the comparison principle, we get that for any . For any , we have . Thus

When is small enough, we have.

According to the comparison principle, we get that ; then is a radial lower control function of all of the solutions for (P), and is a radial subsolution for (P).*Case 2 (). *Let be a positive constant. Denote on as

*Proof. *It is easy to be seen from Theorems 3.1 and 3.2

#### 4. The Existence of Boundary Blow-Up Solutions

Theorem 4.1. *If and satisfies
**
where is defined in (H _{4}), and are positive constants, then (P) possesses a boundary blow-up solution.*

*Proof. *In order to deal with the existence of boundary blow-up solutions, let us consider the problem
where is a positive constant and is a radial subdomain of . Since , then , where . The relative functional of (4.2) is
where . Since is coercive in , then possesses a nontrivial minimum point . So, problem (4.2) possesses a weak solution .

Since , from Theorems 3.1 and 3.2, we get that (P) possesses a supersolution and a subsolution , which satisfy , when (the distance from to ) is small enough. According to the comparison principle, we get that for any .

Denote (). Let us consider the problem

and the relative functional is

Let . Since the functional is coercive in , then has a nontrivial minimum point . Therefore, problem (4.4) has a weak solution .

According to the comparison principle, we get that for any ( ). Since for any , then for any (). According to the comparison principle, we get that for any ().

Since is a supersolution and for any , so we have for any (). According to the comparison principle, we get that for any ().

Since and are locally bounded, from Lemma 2.4, each weak solution of (4.4) is a function. The interior regularity result implies that the sequences and are equicontinuous in , and hence we can choose a subsequence, which we denoted by , such that and uniformly on for some and . In fact, on , and from the interior estimate, we conclude that for some . Thus, . From the interior regularity result, we see that on , and since the function is continuous on , it follows that for . Thus, by the dominated convergence theorem, we have

Furthermore, since and for each , by the monotone convergence theorem, we obtain

Therefore, it follows that

and hence is a weak solution for on .

Thus, there exists a subsequence of which we denote it by, such that in (as ), where and satisfies

Similarly, we can prove that there exists a subsequence of which we denote by, such that in (as ), where satisfies and

Repeating the above steps, we can get a subsequence of which we denote by () and satisfies the following.(1^{0}) For any fixed , is a subsequence of.(2^{0}) For any fixed , in (as ), where satisfies .(3^{0})For any fixed , satisfies

Thus, we can conclude that

(i)is a subsequence of,(ii) there exists a function such that , and for any , there exists a constant such that when , is defined at , and ,(iii)

Obviously, is a boundary blow-up solution for (P).

This completes the proof.

In Theorem 4.1, when , the existence of solutions for (P) is given. In the following, we will consider the existence of solutions for (P) in the general case . We need to do some preparation. Let us consider

where and is a constant.
