Multiple solutions of a perturbed Yamabe-type equation on graph

Let $u$ be a function on locally finite graph $G=(V, E)$ and $\Omega$ be a bounded subset of $V$. Let $\varepsilon>0$, $p>2$ and $0\leq\lambda<\lambda_1(\Omega)$ be constants, where $\lambda_1(\Omega)$ is the first eigenvalue of the discrete Laplacian, and $h: V\ra\mathbb{R}$ be a function satisfying $h\geq 0$ and $h\not\equiv 0$. We consider a perturbed Yamabe equation, say \\
-\Delta u-\lambda u=|u|^{p-2}u+\varepsilon h &{\rm in}& \Omega\\[1.5ex]
u=0&{\rm on}&\p\Omega,\end{array}\ri.
where $\Omega$ and $\p\Omega$ denote the interior and the boundary of $\Omega$ respectively. Using variational methods,
we prove that
there exists some positive constant $\varepsilon_0>0$ such that for all $\varepsilon\in(0,\varepsilon_0)$, the above equation
has two distinct solutions. Moreover, we consider a more general nonlinear equation
-\Delta u=f(u)+\varepsilon h &{\rm in}& \Omega\\[1.5ex]
u=0 &{\rm on}&\p\Omega,\end{array}\ri.
and prove similar result for certain nonlinear term $f(u)$.

Keywords: Multiple solutions, perturbed Yamabe equation, mountain-pass theorem, locally finite graph
