Sign changing solutions of nonlinear Schrödinger equations

Thomas Bartsch, Zhi-Qiang Wang



We are interested in solutions $u\in H^1({\mathbb R}^N)$ of the linear Schrödinger equation
$-\delta u +b_{\lambda} (x) u =f(x,u)$. The nonlinearity $f$ grows
superlinearly and subcritically as $\vert u\vert \to\infty$.
The potential $b_{\lambda}$ is positive, bounded away from $0$, and has a potential well.
The parameter $\lambda$ controls the steepness of the well.
In an earlier paper we found a positive and a negative solution.
In this paper we find third solution. We also prove that this third solution
changes sign and that it is concentrated in the potential well if $\lambda \to \infty$.
No symmetry conditions are assumed.
