Asymptotic behaviour and symmetry of positive solutions to nonlinear elliptic equations in a half-space

  • Lei Wei (a1)


We consider the following equation:

where d(x) = d(x, ∂Ω), θ > –2 and Ω is a half-space. The existence and non-existence of several kinds of positive solutions to this equation when , f(u) = up (p > 1) and Ω is a bounded smooth domain were studied by Bandle, Moroz and Reichel in 2008. Here, we study exact the behaviour of positive solutions to this equation as d(x) → 0+ and d(x) → ∞, respectively, and the symmetry of positive solutions when , Ω is a half-space and f(u) is a more general nonlinearity term than up . Under suitable conditions for f, we show that the equation has a unique positive solution W, which is a function of x 1 only, and W satisfies
