Generalized Choquard Equations Driven by Nonhomogeneous Operators

In this work we prove the existence of solutions for a class of generalized Choquard equations involving the \(\Delta _\Phi \)-Laplacian operator. Our arguments are essentially based on variational methods. One of the main difficulties in this approach is to use the Hardy–Littlewood–Sobolev inequality for nonlinearities involving N-functions. The methods developed in this paper can be extended to wide classes of nonlinear problems driven by nonhomogeneous operators.
