The existence of countably many positive solutions for some nonlinear three-point boundary problems on the half-line. (English) Zbl 1166.34304

Summary: We study the existence of countably many positive solutions for some nonlinear singular three-point boundary problems on the half-line
\[ \begin{aligned} &(\phi(u')(t))'+a(t)f(t,u(t))=0,\quad 0<t<+\infty,\\ & u(0)-B_0(y'(\eta))=0,\quad u'(\infty)=0,\end{aligned} \]
where \(\phi(s):\mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}\) is an increasing homeomorphism and positive homomorphism and \(\phi(0)=0\) and \(\eta\in(0,+\infty)\), \(a:[0,+\infty)\to[0,+\infty)\) and has countably many singularities on \([0,+\infty)\). By using the fixed-point index theorem and a new fixed-point theorem in cones, the existence of countably many solutions are obtained under conditions weaker than those used by B. F. Liu and J. H. Zhang [J. Math. Anal. Appl. 309, No. 2, 505–516 (2005; Zbl 1086.34022)].
