On a singularly perturbed Neumann problem with the critical exponent. (English) Zbl 0997.35021
Summary: We consider the following singularly perturbed Neumann problem with the critical exponent: \[ \begin{cases} -\varepsilon^2\Delta u+u=u^{\frac{n+2}{n-2}},\;u>0,& \text{in }\Omega\\ \frac{\partial u}{\partial\nu}=0 & \text{on }\partial\Omega\end{cases} \] and show that as \(\varepsilon\) tends to zero, the peak of the solutions tends to the boundary of the domain provided that the energy of the solutions remains below a certain natural level. This phenomenon is very different from the subcritical case.
