We consider the nonlinear eigenvalue problem $-\Delta u + g(u) = \lambda sin u$ in Ω, $u > 0$ in Ω, u = 0 on ∂ Ω, where $\Omega \subset R^N (N \geq 2)$ is an appropriately smooth bounded domain and $\lambda > 0$ is a parameter. It is known that if $\lambda \gg 1$, then the corresponding solution uλ is almost flat and almost equal to π inside Ω. We establish an asymptotic expansion of $u_\lambda(x) (x \in \Omega)$ when $\lambda \gg 1$, which is explicitly represented by g.
