Abstract:
We give global estimates on some potential of functions in a bounded domain
of the Euclidean space ${\mathbb{R}}^n\; (n\geq 2)$. These functions
may be singular near the boundary and are globally comparable to a product
of a power of the distance to the boundary by some particularly well behaved
slowly varying function near zero. Next, we prove the existence and uniqueness
of a positive solution for the integral equation $u=V(a u^{\sigma})$ with
$0\leq \sigma <1$, where V belongs to a class of kernels that contains
in particular the potential kernel of the classical Laplacian
$V=(-\Delta)^{-1}$ or the fractional laplacian
$V=(-\Delta)^{\alpha/2}$, $0<\alpha<2$.
