Liouville type theorem for nonlinear elliptic equation with general nonlinearity

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we study the nonexistence of positive solutions for the following elliptic equation $$ \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} \displaystyle -\Delta u=f(u) & in \quad \mathbb{R}_+^N, \displaystyle \\ \frac{\partial u}{\partial \nu}=g(u) & on \quad \partial \mathbb{R}_+^N \end{array} \right. $$ and elliptic system $$ \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} \displaystyle -\Delta u_1=f_1(u_1,u_2) &in \quad \mathbb{R}_+^N, \\ \\-\Delta u_2=f_2(u_1,u_2) & in\quad \mathbb{R}_+^N, \\ \displaystyle \\ \frac{\partial u_1}{\partial \nu}=g_1(u_1,u_2),\quad \frac{\partial u_2}{\partial \nu}=g_2(u_1,u_2) & on \quad \partial \mathbb{R}_+^N. \end{array} \right. $$ We will prove that these problems possess no positive solutions under some assumptions on nonlinear terms. The main technique we use is the moving plane method in an integral form.
