We consider the SU(3) singular Toda system on a compact surface (Σ,g)−Δu1=2ρ1(h1eu1∫Σh1eu1dVg−1)−ρ2(h2eu2∫Σh2eu2dVg−1)−4π∑m=1Mα1m(δpm−1)−Δu2=2ρ2(h2eu2∫Σh2eu2dVg−1)−ρ1(h1eu1∫Σh1eu1dVg−1)−4π∑m=1Mα2m(δpm−1), where hi are smooth positive functions on Σ, ρi∈R+, pm∈Σ and αim>−1. We give both existence and non-existence results under some conditions on the parameters ρi and αim. Existence results are obtained using variational methods, which involve a geometric inequality of new type; non-existence results are obtained using blow-up analysis and localized Pohožaev-type identities."

The problem amounts to solving a fourth-order nonlinear elliptic equation with variational structure. Since the corresponding Euler functional is in general unbounded from above and from below, we employ topological methods and minimax schemes, jointly with a compactness result by the second author.1 aDjadli, Zindine1 aMalchiodi, Andrea uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/230800387nas a2200109 4500008004100000245008000041210006900121260001000190653001900200100002200219856003600241 2000 en d00aExistence and multiplicity results for some problems in Riemannian geometry0 aExistence and multiplicity results for some problems in Riemanni bSISSA10aYamabe problem1 aMalchiodi, Andrea uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/5948
