Zbl 1442.34047

Summary: We investigate the existence of positive solutions for a nonlinear higher order differential system, where the differential system is coupled not only in the differential system but also through the boundary conditions. By constructing a special cone and using the fixed point theorem of cone expansion and compression of norm type, the existence of single and multiple positive solutions is established. As an application, we give some examples to demonstrate our results.
