Abstract : Consider the boundary value problem y double prime + 1/xy' + beta f(y) = 0, y'(0) = 0, y(tau) = tau where beta > or = 0, tau > or = 0. The function f(y) satisfies certain properties which generalize the properties of (f sub 0)(y) = exp (-1/(absolute value of y)). The author is concerned with the number of solutions in various regions of the tau, beta plane. (Author)
