Abstract: We consider the problem $ - \Delta u = \lambda gu$ in $ {R^n}$, $ u \to 0$ at $ \infty $ with $ g$ a function that changes sign. Under suitable growth conditions on $ g$ we show that this problem has an eigenvalue $ \lambda $ with a positive solution $ u$, as well as countably many other eigenvalues.
