The main aim is to prove, both on bounded and unbounded intervals, the existence of solutions for boundary-value problems associated with ODEs of the form
where F is a strictly increasing homeomorphism from R to R , the function a is continuous, non-negative and can vanish a set of zero Lebesgue measure (hence, the equation can be singular), and f is a generic Carathéodory function. Equations of the form (*) naturally arise in non-Newtonian fluid theory, reaction-diffusion processes in porus media ecc. Our goal is thus to prove the existence of solutions for these equations under different types of boundary conditions (Dirichlet, Neumann, mixed, functionals and/or non-local ecc.). Due to the great generality of conditions, the techniques we use are borrowed from the Functional Analysis (fixed-point/degree theory, method of lower/upper solutions ecc.).
