##### Abstract

In this paper, we are concerned with the third-order equations

$\left\{\begin{array}{cc}{\left(-\Delta \right)}^{\frac{3}{2}}u={u}^{\frac{d+3}{d-3}},\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\hfill & x\in {ℝ}^{d},\hfill \\ u\in {C}^{3}\left({ℝ}^{d}\right),\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\hfill & u\left(x\right)>0,\phantom{\rule{2.77626pt}{0ex}}x\in {ℝ}^{d},\hfill \end{array}\right\$

and

$\left\{\begin{array}{cc}{\left(-\Delta \right)}^{\frac{3}{2}}u=\left(\frac{1}{|x{|}^{6}}\ast |u{|}^{2}\right)u,\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\hfill & x\in {ℝ}^{d},\hfill \\ u\in {C}^{3}\left({ℝ}^{d}\right),\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\hfill & u\left(x\right)>0,\phantom{\rule{2.77626pt}{0ex}}x\in {ℝ}^{d},\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}d\ge 7,\hfill \end{array}\right\$

with ${Ḣ}^{\frac{3}{2}}$-critical nonlinearity. By showing the equivalence between the PDEs and the corresponding integral equations and using results from Chen et al. (2006) and Dai et al. (2018), we prove that positive classical solutions $u$ to the above equations are radially symmetric about some point ${x}_{0}\in {ℝ}^{d}$ and derive the explicit forms for $u$.
