Solvability of three-point boundary value problems at resonance with a \(p\)-Laplacian on finite and infinite intervals. (English) Zbl 1261.34025

Summary: Three-point boundary value problems for second-order differential equation with a \(p\)-Laplacian on finite and infinite intervals are investigated. By using a new continuation theorem, sufficient conditions are given, under resonance conditions, to guarantee the existence of solutions to such boundary value problems with a nonlinear term involving the first-order derivative explicitly.
