where K(x) denotes the mean curvature of ∂Ω at the point x nearest to x, and o(δ) has the usual meaning. Boundary estimates for various nonlinearities have been discussed in several papers, see for example [1, 3, 5, 8, 13–16]. In Section 2 of the present paper we investigate boundary blowup solutions of the equation Δu= eu|u| , with β > 0, β = 1. We prove(More)
