This paper contains some existence and multiplicity results for periodic solutions of second order nonautonomous and nonsmooth Hamiltonian systems involving nonconvex superpotentials. This study is achieved by proving the existence of homoclinic solutions. These solutions are constructed as critical points of the corresponding nonconvex and nonsmooth energy functional.
