|Title:||Infinitely many solutions for the prescribed scalar curvature problem on Sᴺ||Contributor(s):||Wei, Juncheng (author); Yan, Shusen (author)||Publication Date:||2010||DOI:||10.1016/j.jfa.2009.12.008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7480||Abstract:||In this paper, we consider the simplest case, i.e., K is rotationally symmetric, K = K(r), r = |y|. It follows from the Pohozaev identity (1.2) that (1.6) has no solution if K'(r) has fixed sign. Thus we assume that K is positive and not monotone. On the other hand, Bianchi  showed that any solution of (1.6) is radially symmetric if there is an rₒ > 0, such that K(r) is non-increasing in (0, rₒ], and non-decreasing in [rₒ,+∞). Moreover, in , it was proved that (1.6) has no solutions for some function K(r), which is non-increasing in (0, 1], and nondecreasing in [1,+∞). Therefore, we see that to obtain a solution for (1.6), it is natural to assume that K(r) has a local maximum at rₒ > 0. The purpose of this paper is to answer the following two questions: Q1. Does the existence of a local maximum of K guarantee the existence of a solution to (1.6)? Q2. Are there non-radially symmetric solutions to (1.6)?||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Functional Analysis, 258(9), p. 3048-3081||Publisher:||Academic Press||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1096-0783
