On the existence of m-point boundary value problem at resonance for higher order differential equation. (English) Zbl 1046.34029

The paper considers an m-point boundary value problem for a higher-order differential equation of the form

x (k) (t)=f(t,x(t),x ' (t),,x (k-1) (t))+e(t),t(0,1),
x ' (0)=0,x '' (0)=0,,x (k-1) (0)=0,x(1)= i=1 m-2 a i x(ξ i ),

where f:[0,1]× k and e:[0,1] are continuous functions. Further, m3, k2 are two integers, a i , ξ i (0,1), i=1,2,,m-2, ξ 1 <ξ 2 <<ξ m-2 . The authors study the problem at resonance because they assume that

i=1 m-2 a i =1·

Moreover, they do not need that all a i ’s, 1im-2, have the same sign.

The authors prove a new existence result under certain sign and growth conditions imposed on f. The growth of f in some variables can be superlinear. The proofs are based on Mawhin’s continuation theorem. Some examples illustrate the obtained result.
