On the existence of two solutions of the periodic problem for the ordinary second-order differential equation. (English) Zbl 0808.34023
The author considers the differential equation \(u'' + f(u)u' + g(t,u,u') = s\), \(t \in I\), where \(s \in\mathbb R\) is a parameter, \(I = [a,b] \subset\mathbb R\), \(f \in C(R)\) and \(g \in C(I \times\mathbb R^ 2)\), under periodic conditions \(u(a) = u(b)\), \(u'(a) = u'(b)\). Using a certain relation between strict upper and lower solutions and the coincidence topological degree some theorems on the number of solutions are proved. Some examples are given.
