The singular semilinear elliptic problem -Δu+k(x)u-γ=λup in Ω, u>0 in Ω, u=0 on Ω, is considered, where Ω is a bounded domain with smooth boundary in RN, kClocα(Ω)C(Ω¯), and γ,p,λ are three positive constants. Some existence or nonexistence results are obtained for solutions of this problem by the sub-supersolution method.
