We consider an anisotropic Dirichlet problem which is driven by the (p(z),q(z))-Laplacian (that is, the sum of a p(z)-Laplacian and a q(z)-Laplacian), The reaction (source) term, is a Carathéodory function which asymptotically as x± can be resonant with respect to the principal eigenvalue of (Δp(z),W01,p(z)(Ω)). First using truncation techniques and the direct method of the calculus of variations, we produce two smooth solutions of constant sign. In fact we show that there exist a smallest positive solution and a biggest negative solution. Then by combining variational tools, with suitable truncation techniques and the theory of critical groups, we show the existence of a nodal (sign changing) solution, located between the two extremal ones.
