In the last few decades, much research has gone into proving the existence of solutions to the non-linear elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs) with 0 - Dirichlet boundary conditions on the unit disk. Following the work of Luna and Swift in [15], we seek to find numerical solutions to a PDE of this type and investigate certain salient accompanying questions. We concentrate on find- ing radial-only solutions and investigating the behavior of secondary solution branches bifurcating from those radial ones.
