Using some potential theory tools and the Schauder fixed point theorem, we prove the existence of positive bounded continuous solutions with a precise global behavior for the semilinear elliptic system Δu = p(x)u α ν r in domains D of ℝn, n ≥ 3, with compact boundary (bounded or unbounded) subject to some Dirichlet conditions, where α ≥ 1, β ≥ 1, r ≥ 0, s ≥ 0 and the potentials p, q are nonnegative and belong to the Kato class K(D).
