  Abstract:
In this paper we use a noncompact version of Conley index theory to obtain a Ljusternik-Schnirelmann type result in critical point theory: Let X be a complete Finsler manifold, fC1(X,\BbbR) which satisfies Palais-Smale condition and φt be the flow relative to a pseudo-gradient vector field for f. If IX is a (c)-invariant set with f(I) bounded, then f has at least νH(h(I))−1 critical points in I where νH is the (homotopy) Ljusternik-Schnirelmann category and h(I) is the Conley index of I.
