We introduce a new variational method in order to derive results concerning existence and nodal properties of solutions to superlinear equations, and we focus on applications to the equation \Gamma\Deltau = h(x; u) u 2 L ); ru 2 L ); N 3 where h is a Caratheodory function which is odd in u. In the particular case where h is radially symmetric, we prove, for given n 2 N, the existence of a solution having precisely n nodal domains, whereas some results also pertain to a nonsymmetric nonlinearity.

It is well known that the concept of a point charge interacting with the electromagnetic (EM) field has a problem. To address that problem we introduce the concept of wave-corpuscle to describe spinless elementary charges interacting with the classical EM field. Every charge interacts only with the EM field and is described by a complex valued wave function over the 4-dimensional space time continuum. A system of many charges interacting with the EM field is defined by a local, gauge and Lorentz invariant Lagrangian with a key ingredient- a nonlinear self-interaction term providing for a cohesive force assigned to every charge. An ideal wave-corpuscle is an exact solution to the Euler-Lagrange equations describing both free and accelerated motions. It carries explicitly features of a point charge and the de Broglie wave. A system of well separated charges moving with nonrelativistic velocities are represented accurately as wave-corpuscles governed by the Newton equations of motion for point charges interacting with the Lorentz forces. In this regime the nonlinearities are ”stealthy ” and don’t show explicitly anywhere, but they provide for the binding forces that keep localized
