A class of Liouville equations and systems on compact surfaces is considered: we focus on the Toda system which is motivated in mathematical physics by the study of models in non-abelian Chern-Simons theory and in geometry in the description of holomorphic curves. We discuss its variational aspects which yield existence results.
