for all V [member of] N(L)\{0}, the solvability of the problem (1) has been extensively studied if the nonlinearity g(x, u) has at most linear growth in u as [absolute value of u] [right arrow] [infinity] (see [1-13] for the case [x.sub.0] = 0 and [14-16] for the general case) or grows superlinearly in u in one of directions u and u [right arrow] -[infinity] and may be bounded in the other (see [8,17] for the case [x.sub.0] = 0 and [14] for the general case when k = 0).
