This work is concerned with the entire positive solutions for a <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/18/mathml/M1','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/18/mathml/M1">View MathML</a>-Laplacian elliptic system of equations with a gradient term. We find the sufficient condition for nonexistence of entire large positive solutions and existence of infinitely many entire solutions, which are large or bounded.
