The upper and lower solution method for some fourth-order boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 1122.34010
Summary: We are concerned with the fourth-order two-point boundary value problem $$\align & u^{(iv)}(t) = f(t, u(t), u'(t), u''(t), u'''(t)),\quad 0 <t < 1,\\ & u(0) = u'(1) = u''(0) = u'''(1) = 0.\endalign$$ By implying certain restrictions on the nonlinear term $f$, we obtain the existence results for the fourth-order two-point boundary value problem via the lower and upper solution method. In particular, a new truncating technique and an appropriate Nagumo-type condition are introduced and employed.
