We study the problem of existence and multiplicity of subharmonic solutions for a second order nonlinear ODE in presence of lower and upper solutions. We show how such additional information can be used to obtain more precise multiplicity results. Applications are given to pendulum type equations and to Ambrosetti-Prodi results for parameter dependent equations.

It is proved the existence of infinitely many solutions to a superquadratic Dirac-type boundary value problem of the form $\tau z = \nabla_z F(t,z)$, $y(0) = y(\pi) = 0$ ($z=(x,y)\in \mathbb{R}^2 $). Solutions are distinguished by using the concept of rotation number. The proof is performed by a global bifurcation technique.
