Ground state solutions for Choquard type equations with a singular potential

Tao Wang

This article concerns the Choquard type equation
 -\Delta u+V(x)u=\Big(\int_{\mathbb{R}^N}\frac{|u(y)|^p}{|x-y|^{N-\alpha}}dy\Big)
 |u|^{p-2}u,\quad x\in \mathbb{R}^N,
where $N\geq3$, $\alpha\in ((N-4)_+,N)$, $2\leq p<(N+\alpha)/(N-2)$ and V(x) is a possibly singular potential and may be unbounded below. Applying a variant of the Lions' concentration-compactness principle, we prove the existence of ground state solution of the above equations.
