This article concerns with the existence of multiple positive solutions for the following logarithmic Schrödinger equation
$ \left\{ \begin{array}{lc} -{\epsilon}^2\Delta u+ V(x)u = u \log u^2, & \mbox{in} \quad \mathbb{R}^{N}, \\ u \in H^1(\mathbb{R}^{N}), & \; \\ \end{array} \right. $
where
$ \epsilon >0 $
,
$ N \geq 1 $
and
$ V $
is a continuous function with a global minimum. Using variational method, we prove that for small enough
$ \epsilon>0 $
, the "shape" of the graph of the function
$ V $
affects the number of nontrivial solutions.
