Existence of weak solutions for some elliptic systems

Lucio Boccardo and Luigi Orsina

Vol. 4 (2022), No. 3, 517–534
Abstract

We study existence of positive weak solutions for stationary systems weakly related to the logarithmic Keller–Segel model for chemotaxis. The simplest case is the Dirichlet problem for

{ Δu + u = Adiv (u ψ 1+ψ) + f(x)  in Ω, Δψ = uλ   in Ω.

We prove existence results under conditions on A > 0 and λ > 0; for instance, we prove existence of finite energy solutions u if 0 < A < 1 2.
