Sign-changing critical point theory / Wenming Zou.

"Many nonlinear problems in physics, engineering, biology, and social sciences can be reduced to finding critical points of functionals. While minimax and Morse theories provide answers to many situations and problems on the existence of multiple critical points of a functional, they often cann...
