Eigenvalue problems for anisotropic equations involving a potential on Orlicz-Sobolev type spaces

Abstract. In this paper we consider an eigenvalue problem that involves a nonhomogeneous elliptic operator, variable growth conditions and a potential \(V\) on a bounded domain in \(\mathbb{R}^N\) (\(N\geq 3\)) with a smooth boundary. We establish three main results with various assumptions. The first one asserts that any \(\lambda\gt 0\) is an eigenvalue of our problem. The second theorem states the existence of a constant \(\lambda_{*}\gt 0\) such that any \(\lambda\in(0,\lambda_{*}]\) is an eigenvalue, while the third theorem claims the existence of a constant \(\lambda^{*}\gt 0\) such that every \(\lambda\in[\lambda^{*}, \infty)\) is an eigenvalue of the problem.

Keywords: anisotropic Orlicz-Sobolev space, potential, critical point, weak solution, eigenvalue.
