dc.description.abstract We prove that the superlinear indefinite equation u"+a(t)up=0, where p>1 and a(t) is a T-periodic sign-changing function satisfying the (sharp) mean value condition ∫a(t) dt<0, has positive subharmonic solutions of order k for any large integer k, thus providing a further contribution to a problem raised by G. J. Butler in its pioneering paper (JDE, 1976). The proof, which applies to a larger class of indefinite equations, combines coincidence degree theory (yielding a positive harmonic solution) with the Poincaré-Birkhoff fixed point theorem (giving subharmonic solutions oscillating around it). en_US
