This paper discusses the existence of homoclinic solutions for two classes of fourth order periodic semilinear differential equations u''''+pu″+a(x)uV u (x,u)=0 by Ambrosetti–Rabinowitz’s Mountain Pass Lemma and Lion’s concentration-compactness argument, where V(x,u) is a positive and superquadratic potential or an indefinite polynomial one with periodicity in x.
