Abstract:
Based on the theory of variable exponent Sobolev spaces, we study a class of
$p(x)$-Laplacian equations in $\mathbb{R}^{N}$ involving the critical exponent.
Firstly, we modify the principle of concentration compactness in
$W^{1,p(x)}(\mathbb{R}^{N})$ and obtain a new type of Sobolev inequalities
involving the atoms. Then, by using variational method, we obtain the
existence of weak solutions when the perturbation is small enough.
