  • Nonlinear Schrödinger equations with an external magnetic field and a power nonlinearity with subcritical exponent $ p $ are considered. It is established a lower bound to the number of nontrivial solutions to these equations in terms of the topology of the domains in which the problem is given if $ p $ is suitably close to the critical exponent $ 2^* = 2N/(N-2) $, $ N \geq 3 $. To prove this lower bound, based on a proof of a result of Benci and Cerami, it is provided an abstract result that establishes Morse relations that are used to count solutions.
