 Volume 9, Number 4, 2019, Pages 1558-1570 A non-radially symmetric solution to a class of elliptic equation with Kirchhoff term Jianqing Chen,Xiuli Tang Keywords:Equation with Kirchhoff term, non-radially symmetric solution, variant variational identity. Abstract: We consider the following equation with Kirchhoff term $-(a+b\int_{\mathbb{R}^3} {|\nabla u|^2} dx)$ $\Delta u + u =|u|^{p-2}u$, $u \in H^1 (\mathbb{R}^3)$, where $a, b$ are positive constants and $2 < p < 6$. By deducing a variant variational identity and a constraint set, we are able to prove the existence of a non-radially symmetric solution $u(x_1, x_2, x_3)$ for the full range of $p\in (2,6)$. Moreover this solution $u(x_1, x_2, x_3)$ is radially symmetric with respect to $(x_1,x_2)$ and odd with respect to $x_3$. PDF      Download reader
