Abstract : This paper is concerned with the global behavior of components of
radial nodal solutions of semilinear elliptic problems
$$-\Delta v=\lambda h(x, v)\ \ \text{in}\ \Omega,\ \ \
v=0\ \ \text{on}\ \partial\Omega,
where $\Omega=\{x\in \mathbb{R}^N: r_1<|x|<r_2\}$ with $0<r_1<r_2,\
The nonlinear term is continuous and satisfies $h(x, 0)=h(x,
s_1(x))=h(x, s_2(x))=0$ for suitable positive, concave function
$s_1$ and negative, convex function $s_2$, as well as $sh(x, s)>0$
for $s\in\mathbb{R}\setminus\{0, s_1(x), s_2(x)\}$. Moreover, we
give the intervals for the parameter $\lambda$ which ensure the
existence and multiplicity of radial nodal solutions for the above
problem. For this, we use global bifurcation techniques to prove our
main results.
