Abstract

In this paper we consider the differential inclusion problem -△pu + u p-2u ∈ α(x)∂F(u(x)), x ∈ ℝN, u ∈ W1,p(ℝN), where 2 ≤ N <p <+ ∞, α ∈ L1(ℝN) ∩ L (ℝN) is radially symmetric, and ∂F stands for the generalized gradient of a locally Lipschitz function F : ℝ → ℝ. Under suitable oscillatory assumptions on the potential F at zero or at infinity, we show the existence of infinitely many, radially symmetric solutions of (DI). No symmetry requirement on F is needed. Our approach is based on a non-smooth Ricceri-type variational principle, developed by Marano and Motreanu (J. Differential Equations 182 (2002) 108-120).
