Ground States for a Class of Nonlinear Schrodinger-Poisson Systems with Positive Potential


Based on Nehari manifold, Schwarz symmetric methods and critical point theory, we prove the existence of positive radial ground states for a class of Schrodinger-Poisson systems in , which doesn’t require any symmetry assumptions on all potentials. In particular, the positive potential is interesting in physical applications.
