Radial solutions of semilinear elliptic equations with broken symmetry on unbounded domains

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We study a superlinear perturbed elliptic problem on $\mathbb R^N$ with rotational symmetry. Using variational and perturbative methods we find infinitely many radial solutions for any growth exponent $p$ of the nonlinearity greater than $2$ and less than $2^*$ if $N \geq 4$ and for any $p$ greater than $3$ and subcritical if $N =3$.
