N2 - The present paper is concerned with the half-space Dirichlet problem [Equation not available: see fulltext.]where R+N:={x∈RN:xN>0} for some N≥ 1 and p> 1 , c> 0 are constants. We analyse the existence, non-existence and multiplicity of bounded positive solutions to (Pc). We prove that the existence and multiplicity of bounded positive solutions to (Pc) depend in a striking way on the value of c> 0 and also on the dimension N. We find an explicit number cp∈(1,e), depending only on p, which determines the threshold between existence and non-existence. In particular, in dimensions N≥ 2 , we prove that, for 0 < c< cp, problem (Pc) admits infinitely many bounded positive solutions, whereas, for c> cp, there are no bounded positive solutions to (Pc).
