In this paper we consider the multiplicity and concentration behavior of positive solutions for the following fractional nonlinear Schrödinger equation
 \left\{ \begin{align} &{{\varepsilon }^{2s}}{{\left( -\Delta \right)}^{s}}u+V\left( x \right)u = f\left( u \right)\ \ \ \ \ \ x\in {{\mathbb{R}}^{N}}, \\ &u\in {{H}^{s}}\left( {{\mathbb{R}}^{N}} \right)\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ u\left( x \right)>0, \\ \end{align} \right.
where
 $\varepsilon$
is a positive parameter,
 $(-Δ)^{s}$
is the fractional Laplacian,
 $s ∈ (0,1)$
and
 $N> 2s$
. Suppose that the potential
 $V(x) ∈\mathcal{C}(\mathbb{R}^{N})$
satisfies
 $\text{inf}_{\mathbb{R}^{N}} V(x)>0$
, and there exist
 $k$
points
 $x^{j} ∈ \mathbb{R}^{N}$
such that for each
 $j = 1,···,k$
,
 $V(x^{j})$
are strict global minimum. When
 $f$
is subcritical, we prove that the problem has at least
 $k$
positive solutions for
 $\varepsilon>0$
small. Moreover, we establish the concentration property of the solutions as
 $\varepsilon$
tends to zero.

In this paper we study the existence of positive multi-peak solutions to the semilinear equation \begin{eqnarray*} \varepsilon^{2s}(-\Delta)^{s}u + u= Q(x)u^{p-1}, \hskip0.5cm u >0, \hskip 0.2cm u\in H^{s}(\mathbb{R}^{N}) \end{eqnarray*} where $(-\Delta)^{s}$ stands for the fractional Laplacian, $s\in (0,1)$, $\varepsilon$ is a positive small parameter, $2 < p < \frac{2N}{N-2s}$, $Q(x)$ is a bounded positive continuous function. For any positive integer $k$, we prove the existence of a positive solution with $k$-peaks and concentrating near a given local minimum point of $Q$. For $s=1$ this corresponds to the result of [22].

In this paper, we study the following problem \begin{eqnarray} (-\Delta)^{\frac{\alpha}{2}}u = K(x)|u|^{2_{\alpha}^{*}-2}u + f(x) \quad in \ \Omega,\\ u=0 \quad on \ \partial \Omega, \end{eqnarray} where $\Omega\subset R^N$ is a smooth bounded domain, $0< \alpha < 2$, $N>\alpha$, $2_{\alpha}^{*}= \frac{2N}{N-\alpha}$, $f\in H^{-\frac{\alpha}{2}}(\Omega)$ and $K(x)\in L^\infty(\Omega)$. Under appropriate assumptions on $K$ and $f$, we prove that this problem has at least two positive solutions. When $\alpha = 1$, we also establish a nonexistence result for a positive solution in a class of linear positive-type domains are more general than star-shaped ones.
