Positive solutions to a singular third-order three-point boundary value problem with an indefinitely signed Green’s function. (English) Zbl 1153.34016
The authors consider the third order three-point boundary value problem, $$u''' = a(t) f(t, u(t)), \quad 0 < t < 1,$$ $$u(0) = u(1) = u''(\eta) = 0,$$ where $\eta \in (17/24, 1)$. They show that even though the Green function is not of constant sign, under certain conditions the problem does admit positive solutions. Their approach is based on phase plane analysis coupled with the Krasnosel’skii fixed point theorem for cone preserving operators.
