In this paper we show the existence of non-negative solutions for a Kirchhoff type problem driven by a nonlocal integrodifferential operator, that is -M(∥-u∥-Z2) LKu=λf(x,u)+| u|2*-2u in Ω,u=0in Rn\-Ω where L K is an integrodifferential operator with kernel K, Ω is a bounded subset of Rn, M and f are continuous functions, ∥̇ ∥Z is a functional norm and 2* is a fractional Sobolev exponent.
