Positive solutions of singular sublinear fourth-order boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 1085.34020
Summary: We give some necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of \(C^2[0, 1]\) and \(C^3[0, 1]\) positive solutions to the singular boundary value problem \[ y''''(t)= p(t)y^\lambda(t),\quad t\in (0,1),\qquad y(0)= y(1)= y'(0)= y'(1)= 0, \] where \(\lambda\in(0,1)\) is given; and \(p: (0, 1)\to[0, \infty)\) can be singular at both ends \(t= 0\) and \(t= 1\). We also give a sufficient condition for the existence of \(C^1[0,1]\) positive solutions to the above problem. The proofs are based upon the method of lower and upper solutions for singular fourth-order boundary value problems.
