Abstract: This paper contains results concerning the number of solutions, as a function of the boundary data, for boundary value problems with jumping nonlinearities. An example seems to indicate that boundary data has a different influence on this number than does forcing data. Through approximating techniques this example leads to lower bounds on solution numbers for the more general case
