  • In this paper, we study the multiplicity of two spikes nodal solutions for a nonautonomous Schrödinger–Poisson system with the nonlinearity $ f(x)\vert u\vert ^{p-2}u(2<p<6) $ in $ \mathbb{R}^{3} $. By assuming that the weight function $ f\in C(\mathbb{R}^{3},\mathbb{R}^{+}) $ has $ m $ maximum points in $ \mathbb{R}^{3} $, we conclude that such system admits $ m^{2} $ distinct nodal solutions, each of which has exactly two nodal domains. The proof is based on a natural constraint approach developed by us as well as the generalized barycenter map.
