    Abstract

    In this article we prove that the semi-linear elliptic partial differential equation- Δ u + u = up in Ω,u > 0 in Ω, u = 0 on ∂ Ω possesses a unique positive radially symmetric solution. Here p > 1 and Ω is the annulus {x ∈ RN | a < | x | < b}, with N ≥ 2, 0 < a < b ≤ ∞. We also show the positive solution is non-degenerate.
