Study of a class of generalized Schrödinger equations

Andrelino V. Santos, João R. Santos Júnior, Antonio Suárez



A class of generalized Schrödinger problems in a bounded domain is studied. A complete overview of the set of solutions is provided, depending on the values assumed by parameters involved in the problem. In order to obtain the results, we combine monotony, bifurcation and variational methods.
