In this paper we will investigate the existence of multiple solutions for the problem (P)Δpu+g(x,u)=λ1h(x)|u|p2u,inΩ,uH01,p(Ω) where Δpu=div(|u|p2u) is the p-Laplacian operator, ΩN is a bounded domain with smooth boundary, h and g are bounded functions, N1 and 1<p<. Using the Mountain Pass Theorem and the Ekeland Variational Principle, we will show the existence of at least three solutions for (P).
