**Solvability of a class of integral inclusions.**

Zbl 1242.45002

Summary: This paper presents sufficient conditions for the existence of positive solutions for a class of integral inclusions. Our results are obtained via a new fixed point theorem for multivalued operators developed in the paper, in which some nonnegative function is used to describe the cone expansion and compression instead of the classical norm-type, and lead to new existence principles.
