Positive solutions of fourth-order nonlinear singular boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 1136.34021

Summary: We consider the existence of positive solutions for the following fourth-order singular Sturm-Liouville boundary value problem:

1 p(t)(p(t)u ''' (t)) ' -g(t)F(t,u)=0,0<t<1,α 1 u(0)-β 1 u ' (0)=0,γ 1 u(1)+δ 1 u ' (1)=0,α 2 u '' (0)-β 2 lim t0+ p(t)u ''' (t)=0,γ 2 u '' (1)+δ 2 lim t1- p(t)u ''' (t)=0

where g, p may be singular at t=0 and/or 1. Moreover F(t,x) may also have singularity at x=0· Existence and multiplicity theorems of positive solutions for the fourth-order singular Sturm-Liouville boundary value problem are obtained by using the first eigenvalue of the corresponding linear problems. Our results significantly extend and improve many known results including singular and nonsingular cases.
