# Erratum: Inverse nodal problem for p-Laplacian energy-dependent Sturm-Liouville equation

The Original Article was published on 12 December 2013

In this note, we correct some mistakes in Theorem 2.1 and Theorem 2.2 which are given in Ref. [1].

Consider the problem (1.3), (1.4) in [1].

## Theorem 2.1

[1]

The eigenvalues${\mathrm{Î»}}_{n}$of the Dirichlet problem (1.3), (1.4) are

${\mathrm{Î»}}_{n}^{2/p}=n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}+\frac{1}{p{\left(n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{pâˆ’1}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{1}q\left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt+\frac{2}{p{\left(n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{\frac{pâˆ’2}{2}}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{1}r\left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt+O\left(\frac{1}{{n}^{\frac{p}{2}}}\right).$
(2.4)

## Theorem 2.2

[1]

For the problem (1.3), (1.4), the nodal point expansion satisfies

$\begin{array}{rcl}{x}_{j}^{n}& =& \frac{j}{n}+\frac{j}{p{n}^{p+1}{\left({\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{p}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{1}q\left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt+\frac{2j}{p{n}^{\frac{p}{2}+1}{\left({\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{\frac{p}{2}}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{1}r\left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt+\frac{2}{{\left(n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{{}^{\frac{p}{2}}}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{{x}_{j}^{n}}r\left(x\right){S}_{p}^{p}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dx\\ +\frac{1}{{\left(n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{{}^{p}}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{{x}_{j}^{n}}q\left(x\right){S}_{p}^{p}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dx+O\left(\frac{1}{{n}^{\frac{p}{2}+2}}\right).\end{array}$

## Proof

Let $\mathrm{Î»}={\mathrm{Î»}}_{n}$; integrating (2.3) from 0 to ${x}_{j}^{n}$, we have

$\frac{jâ‹\dots {\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}}{{\mathrm{Î»}}_{n}^{2/p}}={x}_{j}^{n}âˆ’{âˆ«}_{0}^{{x}_{j}^{n}}\frac{2r\left(x\right)}{{\mathrm{Î»}}_{n}}{S}_{p}^{p}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dxâˆ’{âˆ«}_{0}^{{x}_{j}^{n}}\frac{q\left(x\right)}{{\mathrm{Î»}}_{n}^{2}}{S}_{p}^{p}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dx.$

By using the estimates of eigenvalues as

$\frac{1}{{\mathrm{Î»}}_{n}^{2/p}}=\frac{1}{n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}}+\frac{1}{p{\left(n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{p+1}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{1}q\left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt+\frac{2}{p{\left(n{\mathrm{Ï€}}_{p}\right)}^{\frac{p}{2}+1}}{âˆ«}_{0}^{1}r\left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt+O\left(\frac{1}{{n}^{\frac{p}{2}+2}}\right),$

we obtain the result.â€ƒâ–¡
