We prove the existence of viscosity solutions for fractional semilinear elliptic PDEs on open balls with bounded exterior condition in dimension d ≥ 1. Our approach relies on a tree-based probabilistic representation based on a (2s)-stable branching processes for all s ∈ (0, 1), and our existence results hold for sufficiently small exterior conditions and nonlinearity coefficients. In comparison with existing approaches, we consider a wide class of polynomial nonlinearities without imposing…
