The second-order nonlinear elliptic system Δu=f1(x)uα+g1(x)uβ+h1(x)uγP(v), Δv=f2(x)vα+g2(x)vβ+h2(x)vγP(u) with 0<α,β,γ<1, is considered in N. Under suitable hypotheses on functions fi, gi, hi(i=1,2), and P, it is shown that this system possesses an entire positive solution (u,v)loc2,θ(N)×loc2,θ(N)(0<θ<1) such that both u and v are bounded below and above by positive constant multiples of |x|2N for all |x|1.
