Existence of forced vibrations of nonlinear wave equation: (formula presented)existence of infinitely many periodic solutions is proved. This improves the results of the author [29, 30]. We use variational methods to show the existence result. Minimax arguments and energy estimates for the corresponding functional play an essential role in the proof.
