  • We prove the existence of infinitely many sign changing radial solutions for a $ p $-Laplacian Dirichlet problem in a ball. Our problem involves a weight function that is positive at the center of the unit ball and negative in its boundary. Standard initial value problems-phase plane analysis arguments do not apply here because solutions to the corresponding initial value problem may blow up near the boundary due to the fact that our weight function is negative at the boundary. We overcome this difficulty by connecting the solutions to a singular initial value problem with those of a regular initial value problem that vanishes at the boundary.
