Abstract :

The aim of this paper is to study the symmetry properties of positive solutions of nonlinear elliptic boundary value problems of type
$$Delta u+ f(|x|,u, abla u)= 0,,, ext{in},,, R^{n}.$$
u(x) ightarrow 0 ,, ext{as},,, |x| ightarrow infty

We employ the moving plane method based on maximum principle on unbounded domains to obtain the result on symmetry.

Keywords :

Maximum principle; Moving plane method; Semilinear elliptic boundary value problems.
