Spectrum for anisotropic equations involving weights and variable exponents

Ionela-Loredana Stancut

We study the problem
 =\lambda g(x)|u|^{r(x)-2}u
in $\Omega$, $u=0$ on $\partial\Omega$, where $\Omega$ is a bounded domain in $\mathbb{R}^{N}$ ( $N\geq3$), with smooth boundary, $\lambda$ is a positive real number, the functions $p_{i}, q, r:\overline\Omega\to[2,\infty)$ are Lipschitz continuous, is measurable and these fulfill certain conditions. The main result of this paper establish the existence of two positive constants $\lambda_0$ and $\lambda_{1}$ with such that any $\lambda\in[\lambda_{1},\infty)$ is an eigenvalue, while any $\lambda\in(0,\lambda_0)$ is not an eigenvalue of our problem.
