We study an eigenvalue problem in the framework of double phase variational integrals, and we introduce a sequence of nonlinear eigenvalues by a minimax procedure. We establish a continuity result for the nonlinear eigenvalues with respect to the variations of the phases. Furthermore, we investigate the growth rate of this sequence and get a Weyl-type law consistent with the classical law for the p-Laplacian operator when the two phases agree.
