Symmetry and multiple solutions for certain quasilinear elliptic equations. (English) Zbl 1326.35144

The authors establish existence and multiplicity of symmetric solutions for abstract eigenvalue problems \[ J'(u) = \lambda {\mathcal F}'(u) \] where \(J\) is a convex \(C^1\) functional and \[ {\mathcal F}(u) = \int_\Omega F(x,u(x))\;dx, \;\;\;\;F(x,t) = \int_0^t f(x,s) \;ds. \] Connections with existing results and concrete examples are given.
