Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We construct a new family of entire solutions to the Yamabe equation −Δu=[Formula presented]|u|[Formula presented]u in D1,2(Rn). If n=3 our solutions have maximal rank, being the first example in odd dimension. Our construction has analogies with the doubling of the equatorial spheres in the construction of minimal surfaces in S3(1).
