The main goal of this paper is the study of two kinds of nonlinear problems depending on parameters in unbounded domains. Using a nonstandard variational approach, we first prove the existence of bounded solutions for nonlinear eigenvalue problems involving the fractional Laplace operator (-Δ)s and nonlinearities that have subcritical growth. In the second part, based on a variational principle of B. Ricceri [A further critical points theorem, Nonlinear Anal. 71 (2009) 4151--4157], we study a fractional nonlinear problem with two parameters and prove the existence of multiple solutions.
Keywords: Fractional Laplacian, nonlocal eigenvalue problems, unbounded domains, existence and regularity, multiplicity results, Ricceri's principle.
