Abstract

In this paper we are concerned with the uniqueness of positive solutions of boundary value problems for quasilinear differential equations of the type $(|u'|^{m-2}u')' + p(t)f(u) = 0, $ $ m>1$. The key ingredient of the method is the generalized Prüfer transformation. These problems arise, for example, in the study of the $m$-Laplace equation in annular regions.
