Existence of weak solution for nonlinear elliptic system

Mounir Hsini


In this paper, we prove the existence of weak solutions for the following nonlinear elliptic system

-div A(x,u) = -a(x)|u|p(x)-2u - b(x)|u|α(x)|v|β(x)v + f(x) in Ω,

-div B(x,v) =  -c(x)|v|q(x)-2v - d(x)|v|β(x)|u|α(x)u + g(x) in Ω,

u = v = 0 on ∂Ω,

where Ω is an open bounded domains of RN with a smooth boundary Ω. The existence of weak solutions is proved using the theory of monotone operators.
