Abstract: We study the Cahn-Hilliard equation in a bounded domain without any symmetry assumptions. We assume that the mean curvature of the boundary has a nongenerate critical point. Then we show that there exists a spike-like stationary solution whose global maximum lies on the boundary. Our method is based on Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction and the Brouwer fixed-point theorem.
