We study existence and regularity of positive stationary solutions for a class of nonlinear pseudo-relativistic Schrödinger equations. Such equations are characterized by a nonlocal pseudo-differential operator closely related to the square-root of the Laplacian. We investigate such problems using critical point theory after transforming them to elliptic equations with nonlinear Neumann boundary conditions.
