In this paper we study the existence and concentration behaviors of positive solutions to the Kirchhoff type equations (Formula presented.) where M and V are continuous functions. Under suitable conditions on M and general conditions on f, we construct a family of positive solutions (uε)ε∈(0, ε̃)] which concentrates at a local minimum of V after extracting a subsequence (εk).
