Abstract. On a bounded smooth domain Ω ⊂ R N we study solutions of a semilinear elliptic equation with an exponential nonlinearity and a Hardy potential depending on the distance to ∂Ω. We derive global a priori bounds of the Keller–Osserman type. Using a Phragmen–Lindelöf alternative for generalized sub and superharmonic functions we discuss existence, nonexistence and uniqueness of socalled large solutions, i.e., solution which tend to infinity at ∂Ω. The approach develops the one used by the same authors [2] for a problem with a power nonlinearity instead of the exponential nonlinearity. 1.

We study the problem of the existence and nonexistence of positive solutions to a superlinear second–order divergence type elliptic equation with measurable coefficients (∗): − ∇ · a · ∇u = up in an unbounded cone–like domain G ⊂ RN (N ≥ 3). We prove that the critical exponent p ∗ (a, G) = inf{p> 1: (∗) has a positive supersolution in G} for a nontrivial cone–like domain is always in (1, N N−2) and in contrast with exterior domains depends both on the geometry of the domain G and the coefficients a of the equation.

In this paper we prove a sufficient condition, in terms of the behavior of a ground state of a symmetric critical operator, such that a nonzero solution of another symmetric nonnegative operator is a ground state. In particular, if Pj: = − ∆ + Vj, for j = 0,1, are two nonnegative Schrödinger operators defined on Ω ⊆ R d such that P1 is critical in Ω with a ground state ϕ, the function ψ ≰ 0 solves the equation P0u = 0 in Ω and satisfies ψ  ≤ Cϕ in Ω, then P0 is critical in Ω and ψ is its ground state. In particular, ψ is (up to a multiplicative constant) the unique positive solution of the equation P0u = 0 in Ω. Similar results hold for general symmetric operators, and also on Riemannian manifolds.

: The purpose of this paper is to extend existence results for HamiltonJacobi Bellman equations, i.e. sup k2IN (L k u(x) + f k (x)) = 0 in !, u = 0 on @!, where L k is a family of uniformly elliptic operators and ! is a bounded regular domain in IR p . The classical results give existence, uniqueness and Holder regularity when all the operators L k have nonpositive zeroorder term (see Lions [15], KrylovSafonov [14], [18]). We want to handle here the more general case where L k have principal eigenvalues bounded below by a positive constant. As a motivation for this work, we give an application to the study of the Maximum Principle in infinite cylinders, following a work by Berestycki, Caffarelli and Nirenberg [2]. This is used to extend the cylindrical symmetry result in [2] to a more general class of operators. 1 Introduction and main results We consider the following HamiltonJacobiBellman equation: 8 ! : sup k2N (L k u(x) + f k (x)) = 0 in ! u = 0 on @!; (1.1...

Abstract. We study the existence of positive solutions for a class of nonlinear Schrödinger equations of the type −ε 2 ∆u + V u = u p in R N, where N ≥ 3, p> 1 is subcritical and V is a nonnegative continuous potential. Amongst other results, we prove that if V has a positive local minimum, and N N+2 < p <, then N−2 N−2 for small ε the problem admits positive solutions which concentrate as ε → 0 around the local minimum point of V. The novelty is that no restriction is imposed on the rate of decay of V. In particular, we cover the case where V is compactly supported. 1.

Abstract. Semilinear elliptic equations which give rise to solutions blowing up at the boundary are perturbed by a Hardy potential µ/δ(x, ∂Ω) 2. The size of this potential effects the existence of a certain type of solutions (large solutions): if µ is too small, then no large solution exists. The presence of the Hardy potential requires a new definition of large solutions, following the pattern of the associated linear problem. Nonexistence and existence results for different types of solutions will be given. Our considerations are based on a PhragmenLindelöf type theorem which enables us to classify the solutions and subsolutions according to their behavior near the boundary. Nonexistence follows from this principle together with the KellerOsserman upper bound. The existence proofs rely on sub and supersolution techniques and on estimates for the Hardy constant derived in Marcus, Mizel and Pinchover [9]. 1.
