Consider the Dirichlet problem

(φ p (x ' )) ' +f(t,x)=0,x(0)=0=x(T),(1)

with φ p (u)=|u| p-2 u, 1<p<, and assume

a(t)lim inf |u| f(t,u) φ p (u)lim sup |u| f(t,u) φ p (u)b(t)·(2)

The existence of solutions to (1) is obtained from conditions on the eigenvalues of the problem

(φ p (x ' )) ' +λw(t)φ p (x)=0,x(0)=0=x(T),(3)

with w=a and w=b. It is first proved that for positive weights w, the problem (3) has a sequence of eigenvalues 0<λ 1 (w)<...<λ k (w)<... which depend monotonically on the weight. The existence of a solution to

(φ p (x ' )) ' +g(x)x ' +f(t,x)=0,x(0)=0=x(T),

is obtained assuming

lim sup |u| f(t,u) φ p (u)b(t),

where bL 1 (0,T) is positive and λ 1 (b)>1. Similarly, the existence of a solution to (1) follows assuming (2), where a and ba are positive and for some k2, λ k-1 (a)<1<λ k (b). These results are based on degree arguments. In a last section, best Sobolev constants are obtained which imply estimates on the first eigenvalue of (3). These are used in examples.
