Abstract: Let $\Omega \subset \mathbf{R}^N$ with $N \geq 2$. We consider the equations

\begin{displaymath}\begin{array}{rcl} \displaystyle \sum _{i=1}^{N} u^{a_i} \frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial x_i^2} +p(\mathbf{x})& = & 0, \\ u|_{\partial\Omega} & = & 0, \end{array} \end{displaymath}

with $a_1 \geq a_2 \geq .... \geq a_N \geq 0$ and $a_1>a_N$. We show that if $\Omega$ is a convex bounded region in $\mathbf{R}^N$, there exists at least one classical solution to this boundary value problem. If the region is not convex, we show the existence of a weak solution. Partial results for the existence of classical solutions for non-convex domains in $\mathbf{R}^2$ are also given.
