Constructive proof of existence for a class of fourth-order nonlinear BVPs. (English) Zbl 1189.34038

Summary: A new existence proof of solutions for a class of fourth-order nonlinear boundary value problems is proposed. The proof of the main results is based on the reproducing kernel theorem. It is worthwhile to point out that the method presented in this paper can be applied for the existence proof of diverse kinds of boundary conditions.
