We consider the perturbed half-linear Euler differential equation (Φ(x))+[γ/tp+c(t)]Φ(x)=0, Φ(x):=|x|p2x, p>1, with the subcritical coefficient γ<γp:=((p1)/p)p. We establish a Bargmann-type necessary condition for the existence of a nontrivial solution of this equation with at least (n+1) zero points in (0,).
