### Abstract

In this paper, we study the existence of nontrivial solutions for the following Dirichlet problem for the p-Laplacian (p>1): $$\left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}l} {{ - \Delta _{p} u \equiv - {\text{div}}{\left( {{\left| {\nabla u} \right|}^{{p - 2}} \nabla u} \right)} = f{\left( {x,u} \right)},} \hfill} & {{x \in \Omega ,} \hfill} \\ {{u = 0,} \hfill} & {{x \in \partial \Omega ,} \hfill} \\ \end{array} } \right.$$ where Ω is a bonded domain in ℝ N (N≥1) and f(x,u) is quasi-asymptotically linear with respect to |u| p −2 u at infinity. Recently it was proved that the above problem has a positive solution under the condition that f(x,s)/s p −1 is nondecreasing with respect to s for all x∈Ω and some others. In this paper, by improving the methods in the literature, we prove that the functional corresponding to the above problem still satisfies a weakened version of (P.S.) condition even if f(x,s)/s p −1 isn't a nondecreasing function with respect to s, and then the above problem has a nontrivial weak solution by Mountain Pass Theorem.
