# Multiple solutions with changing sign energy to a nonlinear elliptic equation

• In this paper, the existence of multiple solutions to a nonlinear elliptic equation with a parameter $\lambda$ is studied. Initially, the existence of two nonnegative solutions is showed for $0 < \lambda < \hat \lambda$. The first solution has a negative energy while the energy of the second one is positive for $0 < \lambda < \lambda_0$ and negative for $\lambda_0 < \lambda < \hat \lambda$. The values $\lambda_0$ and $\hat \lambda$ are given under variational form and we show that every corresponding critical point is solution of the nonlinear elliptic problem (with a suitable multiplicative term). Finally, the existence of two classes of infinitely many solutions is showed via the Lusternik-Schnirelman theory.
