Nonlinear Neumann equations driven by a nonhomogeneous differential operator

Abstract

We consider a nonlinear Neumann problem driven by a nonhomogeneous nonlinear differential operator and with a reaction which is (p-1)-superlinear without necessarily satisfying the Ambrosetti-Rabinowitz condition. A particular case of our differential operator is the p-Laplacian. By combining variational methods based on critical point theory with truncation techniques and Morse theory, we show that the problem has at least three nontrivial smooth solutions, two of which have constant sign (one positive and the other negative).
