In this article we discuss the existence, uniqueness and regularity of solutions of the following system of coupled semilinear Poisson equations on a smooth bounded domain Ω in ℝn: Asu = vp in Ω Asv = ƒ(u) in Ω u = v = 0 on ∂Ω where s ∈ (0, 1) and As denote spectral fractional Laplace operators. We assume that 1 < p < 2s/n-2s, and the function ƒ is superlinear and with no growth restriction (for example ƒ(r) = re r; thus the system has a nontrivial solution. Another important example is given by ƒ(r) = rq. In this case, we prove that such a system admits at least one positive solution for a certain set of the couple (p, q) below the critical hyperbola 1/p+1 + 1/q+1 = n-2s/n whenever n > 2s. For such weak solutions, we prove an L∞ estimate of Brezis-Kato type and derive the regularity property of the weak solutions.
