Kirchhoff-type problems involving nonlinearities satisfying only subcritical and superlinear conditions

Biagio Ricceri

In this note, we study the problem
 -h\Big(\int_{\Omega}|\nabla u(x)|^2dx\Big)\Delta u=f(u) \quad \text{in } \Omega\cr
As an application of a general multiplicity result, we establish the existence of at least three solutions, two of which are global minimizers of the related energy functional. The only condition assumed on f is that it be subcritical and superlinear; no condition on the behaviour of f at 0 is required.
