We consider a double phase (unbalanced growth) Dirichlet problem with a Carathéodory reaction f ( z , x ) which is superlinear in x but without satisfying the AR-condition. Using the symmetric mountain pass theorem, we produce a whole sequence of distinct bounded solutions which diverge to infinity.

We consider a semilinear Dirichlet problem with a reaction which exhibits an asymmetric behaviour as x→±∞ (it is superlinear as x→+∞ and resonant as x→−∞). Using variational tools from the critical point theory, together with truncation and comparison techniques and critical groups, we prove two multiplicity theorems producing two and three nontriv...
