On a nonlinear elliptic system: resonance and bifurcation cases. (English) Zbl 1064.35052

The authors consider a class of semilinear elliptic systems \[ \begin{split} -\triangle u = \lambda u + \delta v + g_1(u,v,) - r_1(x), \\ -\triangle v = \theta u + \gamma v + g_2(u,v) - r_2(x) \end{split} \] on a bounded smooth domain \(\Omega \) in \(\mathbb R^N, u,v \in H_0^1(\Omega )\). The assumptions allow to interprete the system as a steady state of a reaction-diffusion problem. The authors generalize to this class some of the results known for a scalar case. Using Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction and fixed point approach they give sufficient conditions for bifurcation and apply the results to a boundary value problem for the biharmonic equation.
