Existence of solutions for a sublinear system of elliptic equations. (English) Zbl 0993.35032
Summary: We study the existence of nontrivial nonnegative solutions for the system \[ -\Delta u = |x|^av^p,\qquad \Delta v = |x|^bu^q, \] where \(p\) and \(q\) are positive constants with \(pq<1\), and the domain is the unit ball of \({\mathbb{R}}^N\) (\(N>2\)) except for the center zero. We look for pairs of functions that satisfy the above system and Dirichlet boundary conditions set to zero. Our results also apply to some super-linear systems.
