In this paper we consider a nonlinear periodic system driven by the vector ordinary $p$-Laplacian and having a nonsmooth locally Lipschitz potential, which is positively homogeneous. Using a variational approach which exploits the homogeneity of the potential, we establish the existence of a nonconstant solution.

In this paper, we develop a generalized quasilinearization technique for a nonlinear second order periodic boundary value problem and obtain a sequence of approximate solutions converging uniformly and quadratically to a solution of the problem. Then we improve the convergence of the sequence of approximate solutions by establishing the convergence of order $k$$(...$

A connection between the Landesman-Lazer condition and the solvability of the equation Lx = N(x) in a cone with a noninvertible linear operator L is studied. The result is based on the abstract framework from [5], applied to the existence of periodic solutions of ordinary differential equations, and compared with theorems by Santanilla (see [7]).
