where n [greater than or equal to] 0, g(x) is given bounded, continuous function, and f(u) is nonlinear function; in [1], we can see that the most popular form of f(u) is f(u) = [u.sup.m], where m is a constant parameter; this type of equation is the Lane-Emden equations of the first kind; in addition, f(u) can be the exponential functions f(u) = [e.sup.u]; this type of equations is called the Lane-Emden equations of the second kind; furthermore, the function f(u) can be logarithmic functions and trigonometric functions; all these types of equations are named after the astrophysicists Jonathan Lane and Robert Emden; they were the first to study these types of equations.
