Abstract: The main result establishes the existence of a nontrivial nonnegative radial solution $ u \in C_{\operatorname{loc} }^2({{\mathbf{R}}^N})$ of a semilinear elliptic eigenvalue problem in $ {{\mathbf{R}}^N},N \geq 3$, such that $ u(\vert x\vert)$ has uniform limit zero as $ \vert x\vert \to \infty $. Asymptotic decay estimates and necessary conditions are obtained. Since such solutions do not exist in the space $ W_0^{1,2}({{\mathbf{R}}^N})$, a considerable departure from standard procedures is required.
