We prove the existence of positive explosive solutions for the equation Δu+λ(|x|)|u(x)|=ϕ(x,u(x)) in the whole space N(N3), where λ:[0,)[0,) is a continuous function and ϕ:N×[0,)[0,) is required to satisfy some hypotheses detailed below. More precisely, we will give a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a positive solution that blows up at infinity.
