Ground State Solutions of Nonlinear Stationary Schrdinger Systems with Discontinuous Nonlinearity and Variable Potential

Abstract:
We establish the existence of an entire solution for a class of stationary Schrdinger systems with subcritical discontinuous nonlinearities and lower bounded potentials that blow-up at infinity. The proof is based on the critical point theory in the sense of Clarke and we apply the Mountain Pass Lemma for locally Lipschitz functionals. Our result generalizes in a nonsmooth framework a result of Rabinowitz (1992) on the existence of entire solutions of the nonlinear Schrdinger equation.

Keywords:
