    Abstract

    The existence of positive solutions for a class of nonhomogeneous elliptic equations in RN was analyzed. The mountain pass minimax value was strictly less than the first level of the break down of (PS)c-condition for I(u). Through the Mountain Pass Theorem, a critical point was obtained which was a positive solution of the nonhomogeneous elliptic equation.
