By using the concentration-compactness method of Lions [14, 16] and the mountain pass theorem of Ambrosetti and Rabinowitz [3], through a careful inspection of the energy balance for some sequence of approximated solutions, we show that under suitable conditions on f and h, the inhomogeneous problem. −Δu + c2u = λ(f(u) + h(x)) for x ∈ Ω (Ω is an exterior domain in ℝN, N≧ 3) and has at least two positive solutions.
