Title: Existence of solutions for an elliptic equation involving
the $p(x)$-Laplace operator
Author: Maria-Magdalena Boureanu (Univ. of Craiova, Romania)
Abstract:
In this paper we study an elliptic equation involving the
$p(x)$-Laplace operator on the whole space $\mathbb{R}^N$.
For that equation we prove the existence of a nontrivial
weak solution using as main argument the mountain pass
theorem of Ambrosetti and Rabinowitz.
