Elliptic equations having a singular quadratic gradient term and a changing sign datum

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper we study a singular elliptic problem whose model is \begin{eqnarray*} - \Delta u= \frac{|\nabla u|^2}{|u|^\theta}+f(x), in \Omega\\ u = 0, on \partial \Omega; \end{eqnarray*} where $\theta\in (0,1)$ and $f \in L^m (\Omega)$, with $m\geq \frac{N}{2}$. We do not assume any sign condition on the lower order term, nor assume the datum $f$ has a constant sign. We carefully define the meaning of solution to this problem giving sense to the gradient term where $u=0$, and prove the existence of such a solution. We also discuss related questions as the existence of solutions when the datum $f$ is less regular or the boundedness of the solutions when the datum $f \in L^m (\Omega)$ with $m> \frac{N}{2}$.
