Solvability of various boundary value problems for the equation \(x''=f(t,x,x',x'')-y\). (English) Zbl 0585.34020
Summary: Some of the solvability results of Granas, Guenther and Lee for various homogeneous boundary value problems for the equation \(x''=f(t,x,x')\) are extended in an essentially constructive way to the equation (*): \(x''=f(t,x,x',x'')\) where f is assumed to satisfy the growth condition: \(| f(t,x,r,q)| \leq A(t,x)r^ 2+B| q| +C(t,x)\) for r, q in R with A and C bounded functions on each compact subset of [0,T]\(\times R\) and B in (0,1) and some further conditions stated below. Our proofs are based on the author’s continuation theorem for semilinear A-proper maps and the approach used by Granas, Guenther and Lee in obtaining the a priori bounds for the solutions of equation (*).
