Multipeak solutions for a singularly perturbed Neumann problem. (English) Zbl 0933.35070
Summary: The aim of this paper is to prove the existence of \(k\)-peak solutions (solutions with more than one local maximum point) for the following singularly perturbed problem without imposing any extra condition on the boundary \(\partial\Omega\): \[ \begin{cases} -\varepsilon^2\Delta u+u=u^{p-1},\quad & \text{in }\Omega\\ u>0,\quad & \text{in }\Omega\\ {\partial u\over \partial n}=0, \quad &\text{on } \partial\Omega\end{cases}\tag{1} \] where \(\varepsilon\) is a small positive number, \(\Omega\) is a bounded \(C^3\)-domain in \(\mathbb{R}^N\), \(n\) is the unit outward normal of \(\partial\Omega\) at \(y\), \(2<p<{2N\over N-2}\) if \(N\geq 3\) and \(2<p<+\infty\) if \(N=2\).
