Nonlinear Neumann problems with asymmetric nonsmooth potential

Abstract

In this paper we study a scalar Neumann problem driven by the ordinary p-Lapacian and a nonsmooth potential. The nonlinearity exhibits an asymmetric behavior. Namely growth restriction is imposed in one direction only (either the positive direction or the negative direction). Using a variational approach based on the nonsmooth critical point theory for locally Lipschitz function, we prove the existence of a solution.
