Abstract: Conditions are formulated which guarantee the existence of positive solutions for systems of the form

\begin{displaymath}\begin{gathered}- \Delta {u_1} + {f_1}({u_1}, \ldots ,\,{u_n}... ...}({u_1}, \ldots ,\,{u_n}) = {\mu _n}, \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \end{displaymath}

, where $ \Delta $ is the Laplacian (with Dirichlet boundary conditions) on an open domain in $ {\mathbf{R}^d}$, and where each $ {\mu_i}$ is a positive measure. The main tools used are probabilistic potential theory, Markov processes, and an iterative scheme which is not a generalization of the one used for quasimonotone systems. Quasimonotonicity is not assumed and new results are obtained even for the case where $ \partial {f_k}/\partial {x_j} > 0$ for every $ k$ and $ j$.
