The aim of this paper is to consider the radially-symmetric periodic-Dirichlet problem on [0, T] × Bn[a] for the equation utt - Δ u = f(t, |x|, u), where Δ is the classical Laplacian operator, and Bn[a] denotes the open ball of center 0 and radius a in Rn. When α = a/T is a sufficiently large irrational with bounded partial quotients, we combine some number theory techniques with the asymptotic properties of the Bessel functions to show that 0 is not an accumulation point of the spectrum of the linear part. This result is used to obtain existence conditions for the nonlinear problem.
