Abstract

We consider a singular Liouville equation on a compact surface, arising from the study of Chern–Simons vortices in a self-dual regime. Using new improved versions of the Moser–Trudinger inequalities (whose main feature is to be scaling invariant) and a variational scheme, we prove new existence results.
