In this paper we give a new proof for "the CR Identity" and deduce non existence results of positive solutions for semi-linear boundary value problems on star-shaped domains

where is the sublaplacian of the Heisenberg group , function on a star-shaped and bounded domain.


Keywords and Phrases: Analysis on CR manifolds, CR structure, CR Identity, Critical growth, Yamabe like problems.


En este artículo presentamos una nueva demostración de la identidad de CR Pohozaev sobre el grupo de Heisenberg y deducimos resultados sobre la no existencia de soluciones positivas para problemas semi-lineales con valores en la frontera sobre dominios estrellados

donde es el sublaplaciano del grupo de Heisenberg Hn, g es una función de clase C1 sobre un dominio estrellado y acotado .
