Filed under: PDEs — Tags: — Ngô Quốc Anh @ 2:07

We know consider another type of equation, precisely, we consider the positive solution to the following

\displaystyle -\Delta u=Ke^{2u}

in \mathbb R^n. Following is what we need to prove.

Theorem. The following identity

\displaystyle\begin{gathered} \left( {1 + \frac{n}{2}} \right)\int_{{B_r}(0)} {uK{e^{2u}}dx} + \int_{{B_r}(0)} {u\left( {(x \cdot \nabla K){e^{2u}} + 2(x \cdot \nabla u)K{e^{2u}}} \right)dx} \hfill \\ \qquad= \int_{\partial {B_r}(0)} {ruK{e^{2u}}d\sigma } - \int_{\partial {B_r}(0)} {\left[ {\left( {1 - \frac{n}{2}} \right)u\frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial \nu }} + \frac{1}{2}r|\nabla u{|^2} - r{{\left| {\frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial \nu }}} \right|}^2}} \right]d\sigma } \hfill \\ \end{gathered}
