Iterative solutions of singular boundary value problems of third-order differential equation. (English) Zbl 1225.34031
Summary: We consider the following third-order boundary value problem
\[ \begin{gathered} u'''(t)+f(t,u(t))=0,\quad t\in (0,1),\\ u(0)=u'(0)=0,\qquad u'(1)=\alpha u'(\eta),\end{gathered}\tag{1} \]
where \(f\in C((0,1)\times (-\infty,+\infty),(-\infty,+\infty))\), \(0<\eta<1\).
We give the unique solution of the boundary value problem (1) under the conditions that \(\alpha\eta\neq 1\) and \(f(t,x)\) is mixed nonmonotone in \(x\) by using the cone theory and the Banach contraction mapping principle.
