### An example of sequence of blow-up solutions with finite limiting mass

In this note, we recall an example adapted from an elegant paper due to Y.Y. Li and I. Shafrir published in the Indiana Univ. Math. J. in 1994 [here].

Let us consider the asymptitic behavior of sequences of solutions of $-\Delta u_n=V_n(x)e^{u_n}$

on a bounded domain $\Omega \subset \mathbb R^2$ with $V_n$ a non-negative continuous function. For each solution $u_n$, we call $\displaystyle \alpha_n := \int_{B_R}V_ne^{u_n}dx$

the mass of $u_n$ (over a ball $B_R$). The terminology limiting mass will be referred to the limit $\lim_{n \to \infty} \alpha_n$.

For simplicity, we assume $V_n \equiv 1$. Given $m$, we are going to construct a sequence of solutions $\{u_n\}$ which blows up exactly at $m$ points, say at $a_1,...,a_m \in D$ where $D$ the unit disc of $\mathbb C$. Our equation reads as $-\Delta u=e^{u}$

in $D$. Using the Liouville formula for solutions of the above equation, we get $\displaystyle u(z) = \log \frac{{8|f'(z){|^2}}}{{{{(1 + |f(z){|^2})}^2}}}$

with $f$ an holomorphic function such that $f'(z) \ne 0$.
