Abstract:

Given $1\le q \le 2$ and $\alpha\in\mathbb R$, we study the properties of the solutions of the minimum problem $\lambda(\alpha,q)=\min\left\{\dfrac{\displaystyle\int_{-1}^{1} u' ^{2}dx+\alpha\left \int_{-1}^{1} u ^{q-1}u\, dx\right ^{\frac2q}}{\displaystyle\int_{-1}^{1} u ^{2}dx}, u\in H_{0}^{1}(-1,1),\,u\not\equiv 0\right\}.$ In particular, depending on $\alpha$ and $q$, we show that the minimizers have constant sign up to a critical value of $\alpha=\alpha_{q}$, and when $\alpha>\alpha_{q}$ the minimizers are odd.
