Abstract

We study a semilinear elliptic equation with a strong absorption term given by a non-Lipschitz function. The motivation is related with study of the linear Schrödinger equation with an infinite well potential. We start by proving a general existence result for non-negative solutions. We use also variational methods, more precisely Nehari manifolds, to prove that for any λ>λ1 (the first eigenvalue of the Laplacian operator) there exists (at least) a non-negative solution. These solutions bifurcate from infinity at λ1 and we obtain some interesting additional information. We sketch also an asymptotic bifurcation approach, in particular this shows that there exists an unbounded continuum of non-negative solutions bifurcating from infinity at λ=λ1. We prove that for some neighborhood of (λ1,+∞) the positive solutions are unique. Then Pohozaev’s identity is introduced and we study the existence (or not) of free boundary solutions and compact support solutions. We obtain several properties of the energy functional and associated quantities for the ground states, together with asymptotic estimates in λ, mostly for λ↗λ1. We also consider the existence of solutions with compact support in Ω for λ large enough.
