Abstract

This paper is devoted to the study of the structure of positive radial solutions for the following semi-linear equation: $$Delta u + f(u,|x|)=0 , .$$ We require $f$ to be nonnegative and to exhibit both subcritical and supercritical behavior with respect to the Sobolev critical exponent. More precisely we assume that $f$ is subcritical for $u$ small and $|x|$ large and supercritical for $u$ large and $|x|$ small, and we give existence and non-existence results for ground states regular and singular, with either fast or slow decay. We find a surprisingly rich structure, which is characterized by two different patterns of bifurcations. We perform a Fowler transformation and we use a dynamical approach, exploiting some ideas borrowed from Bamon, Del Pino, Flores, combining them with the use of the translation of the Pohozaev function for this dynamical context.
