Abstract

top
This article is devoted to the study of a perturbation with a viscosity term in an elliptic equation involving the p-Laplacian operator and related to the best contant problem in Sobolev inequalities in the critical case. We prove first that this problem, together with the equation, is stable under this perturbation, assuming some conditions on the datas. In the next section, we show that the zero solution is strongly isolated in some sense, among the space of the solutions. Actually, we end the paper by giving some analoguous results in the case where the datas present symmetries.
