A monotone iterative scheme for a nonlinear second order equation based on a generalized anti-maximum principle. (English) Zbl 1024.34030

The existence of solutions to the following periodic boundary value problem \[ x''+ g(t,x) = 0,\quad x(0) = x(2 \pi), \quad x^\prime(0) = x^\prime (2 \pi), \] where \(g:[0,2 \pi] \times\mathbb R \rightarrow \mathbb R\) is \(L^1\)-Carathéodory function, is studied. The authors prove a generalized anti-maximum principle corresponding to the above problem and use it to develop a monotone iterative scheme for proving the existence of solutions.
