### On the existence of homoclinic type solutions of inhomogenous Lagrangian systems

#### Abstract

We study the existence of homoclinic type solutions for second order Lagrangian systems of the type $\ddot{q}(t)-q(t)+a(t)\nabla G(q(t))=f(t)$, where $t\in \mathbb R$, $q\in\mathbb R^n$, $a\colon\mathbb R\to\mathbb R$ is a continuous positive bounded function, $G\colon\mathbb R^n\to\mathbb R$ is a $C^1$-smooth potential satisfying the Ambrosetti-Rabinowitz superquadratic growth condition and $f\colon\mathbb R\to\mathbb R^n$ is a continuous bounded square integrable forcing term. A homoclinic type solution is obtained as limit of $2k$-periodic solutions of an approximative sequence of second order differential equations.
