Periodic and boundary value problems for second order differential inclusions. (English) Zbl 1014.34009
Here, the authors investigate the existence of extremal solutions to the multivalued boundary value problem $-x''(t)\in F(t,x(t),x'(t)) \;\text{a.e.} \;t\in T=[0,b],$ subjected to nonhomogeneous Sturm-Liouville boundary conditions and Dirichlet conditions at the points $$t=0$$ and $$t=b$$. By means of the concept of upper and lower solutions combined with the Kakutanu-Ky Fan theorem, the authors consider the cases when the multivalued map $$F$$ takes values in $$\mathbb{R}$$ and in a Hilbert space $$H$$.
