 Abstract
A bifurcation problem for nonlinear partial differential equations of the form subject to Dirichlet boundary conditions is discussed. Using a global bifurcation theorem of Rabinowitz type, we show that under certain conditions on and q, the above equation has an unbounded connected set of solutions (u, ).
