## On the solvability of singular boundary value problems on the real line in the critical growth case

 Dipartimento di Ingegneria Industriale e Scienze Matematiche, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Via Brecce Bianche, 12, 60131 Ancona, Italy

Received  May 2019 Revised  August 2019 Published  November 2019

Combining fixed point techniques with the method of lower-upper solutions we prove the existence of at least one weak solution for the following boundary value problem
 $\begin{equation*} \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} \left( \, \Phi(a(t, x(t)) \, x'(t) )\, \right)' = f(t, x(t), x'(t)) &\mbox{ in } \mathbb{R}\\ x(-\infty) = \nu_{1}, \quad x(+\infty) = \nu_{2} \end{array} \right. \end{equation*}$
where
 $\nu_{1}, \nu_{2}\in \mathbb{R}$
,
 $\Phi: \mathbb{R} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$
is a strictly increasing homeomorphism extending the classical
 $p$
-Laplacian,
 $a$
is a nonnegative continuous function on
 $\mathbb{R} \times \mathbb{R}$
which can vanish on a set having zero Lebesgue measure and
 $f$
is a Carathéodory function on
 $\mathbb{R} \times \mathbb{R}^{2}$
.
