Multiple unbounded positive solutions for three-point BVPs with sign-changing nonlinearities on the positive half-line. (English) Zbl 1195.34042

The authors consider the following second-order nonlinear three-point boundary value problem on the positive half-line

-x '' +cx ' +λx=f(t,x(t),x ' (t)),t(0,),
x(0)-αx(η)=a 0 ,lim t x ' (t) re rt =b 0 ,

where a 0 ,b 0 are nonnegative real numbers, α0, η>0, c,λ are real positive constants, r(0,c), and f:(0,)×[0,)× is a Carathéodory function which may change sign. Under general polynomial growth conditions on f the existence of nontrivial single and multiple unbounded positive solutions is proved via fixed point theorems in a cone in a special weighted Banach space.
