Existence of solutions of three-point boundary value problems for nonlinear fourth order differential equation. (English) Zbl 0880.34022
Summary: The author uses the methods in [G. A. Klaasen, J. Differ. Equations 10, 529-537 (1971; Zbl 0218.34024); J. Wang, Northeast. Math. J. 7, No. 2, 181-189 (1991; Zbl 0755.34021)] to study the existence of solutions of three-point boundary value problems of nonlinear fourth-order differential equations \[ y^{(4)}= f(t,y,y',y'';y''')\tag{\(*\)} \] with the boundary conditions \[ \begin{cases} g(y(a),y'(a), y''(a), y'''(a))= 0,\;h(y(b), y''(b))= 0\\ y'(b)= b_1,\;k(y(c),y'(c),y''(c),y'''(c))= 0\end{cases}\tag{\(**\)} \] For the boundary value problems of nonlinear fourth-order differential equations \[ y^{(4)}= f(t,y,y',y'',y''') \] many results have been given at the present time. But the existence of solutions of the boundary value problem \((*)\), \((**)\) studied in this paper has not been involved by the above researches. Moreover, the corollary of the important theorem, i.e. existence of solutions of the boundary value problem of equation \((*)\) with the following boundary conditions \[ a_0 y(a)+ a_1y'(a)+ a_2y''(a)+ a_3 y'''(a)= y_0,\;b_0y(b)+ b_1y''(b)= y_1, \] \[ y'(b)= y_2,\;c_0y(c)+ c_1y'(c)+ c_2y''(c)+ c_3y'''(c)= y_3 \] has not been dealt with in previous works.
