A singular non-local problem at resonance. (English) Zbl 1260.34037

The author uses the coincidence degree theory to study the second-order non-local problem \[ \begin{aligned} x''(t)=f(t, x(t),x'(t))+e(t), \\ x'(0)=0,\;x(1)=\sum^{m-1}_{i=1}a_i x_i(\xi_i),\end{aligned} \] where where \(m \geq 3\), \(0 < \xi_1<\dotsb<\xi_{m-2} < 1\), and \(f\) satisfies the Carathéodory conditions and \(e\) is a locally Lebesgue-integrable function such that \((1-t)e\) is Lebesgue integrable. The author shows the existence of a solution whose derivative is singular at the right end-point of the interval. Under the non-local condition, the author gives a general way to ensure that the differential operator is a Fredholm operator of index zero.
