Positive solutions for elliptic problems with critical nonlinearity and combined singularity. (English) Zbl 1224.35084

Summary: Consider a class of elliptic equation of the form \[ -\Delta u - {\lambda \over {| x| ^2}}u = u^{2^{\ast }-1} + \mu u^{-q}\quad \text{in} \;\Omega \backslash \{0\} \] with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions, where \(0\in \Omega \subset \mathbb {R}^{N}\)(\(N\geq 3\)), \(0 < q < 1\), \(0 < \lambda <(N-2)^2/4\) and \(2^{\ast }= 2N/(N-2)\). We use variational methods to prove that for suitable \(\mu \), the problem has at least two positive weak solutions.
