### Existence results for a nonlinear elliptic equation with critical Sobolev exponent

#### Abstract

In this paper we study the following nonlinear elliptic problem with Dirichlet boundary condition: $-\Delta u =K(x)u^p$, $u>0$ in $\Omega$, $u =0$ on $\partial \Omega$, where $\Omega$ is a bounded, smooth domain of $\mathbb R^n$, $n\geq 4$ and $p+1=2n/(n-2)$ is the critical Sobolev exponent. Using dynamical and topological methods involving the study of the critical points at infinity of the associated variational problem, we prove some existence results.
