## Abstract:

We are concerned with the study of the Lane-Emden equation with variable exponent and Dirichlet boundary condition. The feature of this paper is that the analysis that we develop does not assume any subcritical hypotheses and the reaction can fulfill a mixed regime (subcritical, critical, and supercritical). We consider the radial and the nonradial cases, as well as a singular setting. The proofs combine variational and analytic methods with a version of the Palais principle of symmetric criticality.## References
