Solvability for two classes of higher-order multi-point boundary value problems at resonance. (English) Zbl 1149.34008

Summary: Using the theory of coincidence degree, we establish existence results of positive solutions for higher-order multi-point boundary value problems at resonance for ordinary differential equation
\[ u(n)(t)=f(t,u(t),u'(t),\dots,u^{(n-1)}(t))+e(t),\quad t\in (0,1), \]
with one of the following boundary conditions:
\[ u^{(i)}(0)=0,\quad i=1,2,\dots, n-2, u^{(n-1)}(0)=u^{(n-1)}(\xi), u^{(n-2)}(1)=\sum_{j=1}^{m-2}\beta_ju^{(n-2)}(\eta_j), \] and
\[ u(i)(0)=0,\quad i=1,2,\dots, n-1,\quad u^{(n-2)}(1)=\sum_{j=1}^{m-2}\beta_ju^{(n-2)}(\eta_j), \]
where \(f:[0,1]\times\mathbb R^n\to \mathbb =(-\infty,+\infty)\) is a continuous function, \(e(t)\in L^1[0,1]\beta_j\in\mathbb R\) \((1\leq j\leq m-2, m\geq 4)\), \(0<\eta 1<\eta^2<\cdots <\eta_{m-2}<1\), \(0<\xi<1,\) all the \(\beta_{-j}^{-s}\) have not the same sign. We also give some examples to demonstrate our results.
