Let
 $(M, g)$
be a smooth compact riemannian manifold of dimension
 $N≥2$
with constant scalar curvature. We are concerned with the following elliptic problem
 $\begin{eqnarray*}-{\varepsilon}^2Δ_g u+ u = u^{p-1}, ~~~~u>0,\ \ \ \ \ in \ M.\end{eqnarray*}$
where
 $Δ_g$
is the Laplace-Beltrami operator on
 $M$
,
 $p>2$
if
 $N = 2$
and
 $2 if $N≥3$, $\varepsilon$is a small real parameter. We prove that there exist a function $Ξ$such that if $ξ_0$is a stable critical point of $Ξ(ξ)$there exists ${\varepsilon}_0>0$such that for any ${\varepsilon}∈(0,{\varepsilon}_0)$, problem (1) has a solution $u_{\varepsilon}$which concentrates near $ξ_0$as ${\varepsilon}$tends to zero. This result generalizes previous works which handle the case where the scalar curvature function of $(M,g)$has non-degenerate critical points. Citation: Shengbing Deng, Zied Khemiri, Fethi Mahmoudi.
