Ground states for pseudo-relativistic Hartree equations of critical typeVittorio Coti Zelati and Margherita Nolasco (1) Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Italy

We study the existence of ground state solutions for a class of nonlinear pseudo-relativistic Schrödinger equations with critical two-body interactions. Such equations are characterized by a nonlocal pseudo-differential operator closely related to the square root of the Laplacian. We investigate this problem using variational methods after transforming the problem to an elliptic equation with a nonlinear Neumann boundary conditions.
Keywords: Nonlinear Schrödinger equation, pseudo-relativistic Hartree approximation, solitary waves, ground states
