Abstract

We consider the discrete boundary value problem (P): -Δ(Δu(k - 1)) = f(u(k)), k ∈ [1,T], u(0) = u(T + 1) = 0, where the nonlinear termf: [0, ∞) → ℝ has an oscillatory behaviour near the origin or at infinity. By a direct variational method, we show that (P) has a sequence of non-negative, distinct solutions which converges to 0 (respectively +∞) in the sup-norm wheneverfoscillates at the origin (respectively at infinity).
