Existence and concentration of semiclassical states for nonlinear Schrodinger equations

Shaowei Chen

In this article, we study the semilinear Schrodinger equation
 -\epsilon^2\Delta u+ u+ V(x)u=f(u),\quad u\in H^1(\mathbb{R}^N),
where $N\geq 2$ and $\epsilon>0$ is a small parameter. The function $V$ is bounded in $\mathbb{R}^N$, $\inf_{\mathbb{R}^N}(1+V(x))>0$ and it has a possibly degenerate isolated critical point. Under some conditions on f, we prove that as $\epsilon\to 0$, this equation has a solution which concentrates at the critical point of V.
