  • 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.
