Monotone methods for a discrete boundary problem. (English) Zbl 0872.39005

Authors’ summary: This paper is motivated by recent interests in space discrete Nagumo equations and is concerned with the existence of solutions of a nonlinear discrete boundary value problem. Monotone methods are used to derive the existence theorems. These methods, as is well known, provide constructive schemes for calculating the solutions.
