Abstract

The solvability of semilinear elliptic equations with nonlinearities in the critical growth range depends on the terms with lower-order growth. We generalize some known results to a wide class of lower-order terms and prove a multiplicity result in the left neighborhood of every eigenvalue of $-\Delta$ when the subcritical term is linear. The proofs are based on variational methods; to assure that the considered minimax levels lie in a suitable range, special classes of approximating functions having disjoint support with the Sobolev ``concentrating" functions are constructed.
