This paper shows the existence and multiplicity of nontrivial solutions of the p-Laplacian problem for with zero Dirichlet boundary conditions, where is a bounded open set in , if , if ), , is a smooth function which may change sign in , and . The method is based on Nehari results on three submanifolds of the space .
