      Abstract

      By using bifurcation techniques, this paper investigates the existence of nodal solutions for a class of fourth-order http://static-content.springer.com/image/art%3A10.1155%2F2009%2F970135/MediaObjects/13661_2009_Article_893_IEq2_HTML.gif -point boundary value problems. Our results improve those in the literature.
