Abstract: The equation $ ( * )\Delta u = \phi (x){u^\gamma }$ is considered in $ {{\mathbf{R}}^2}$, where $ \gamma \ne 1$ and $ \phi (x) \geqslant 0$ is locally Hölder continuous. Sufficient conditions are obtained for $ ( * )$ to possess infinitely many positive solutions which are defined throughout $ {R^2}$ and have logarithmic growth as $ \vert x\vert \to \infty $. An extension of the main result to the higher-dimensional case is also attempted.
