Multibump solutions of nonlinear Schrödinger equations with steep potential well and indefinite potential

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We are concerned with the existence of single- and multi-bump solutions of the equation $-\Delta u+(\lambda a(x)+a_0(x))u=|u|^{p-2}u$, $x\in{\mathbb R}^N$; here $p>2$, and $p<\frac{2N}{N-2}$ if $N\geq 3$. We require that $a\geq 0$ is in $L^\infty_{loc}({\mathbb R}^N)$ and has a bounded potential well $\Omega$, i.e. $a(x)=0$ for $x\in\Omega$ and $a(x)>0$ for $x\in{\mathbb R}^N$\$\bar{\Omega}$. Unlike most other papers on this problem we allow that $a_0\in L^\infty({\mathbb R}^N)$ changes sign. Using variational methods we prove the existence of multibump solutions $u_\lambda$ which localize, as $\lambda\to\infty$, near prescribed isolated open subsets $\Omega_1,\dots,\Omega_k\subset\Omega$. The operator $L_0:=-\Delta+a_0$ may have negative eigenvalues in $\Omega_j$, each bump of $u_\lambda$ may be sign-changing.
