We consider the problem of uniqueness of radial ground state solutions to

(P) $\qquad\qquad\qquad -\Delta u=K(|x|)f(u),\quad x\in \mathbb R^n.$

Here $K$ is a positive $C^1$ function defined in $\mathbb R^+$ and $f\in C[0,\infty)$ has one zero at $u_0>0$, is non positive and not identically 0 in $(0,u_0)$, and it is locally lipschitz, positive and satisfies some superlinear growth assumption in $(u_0,\infty)$.
