Description We study the existence of positive solutions on the half-line for the nonlinear second order differential equation satisfying Dirichlet type conditions. The weight function is allowed to change sign and the nonlinearity is assumed to be asymptotically linear in a neighborhood of zero and infinity. Our results cover also the cases in which the weight function is periodic or it is unbounded from below.
