Solvability for a Class of Abstract Two-Point Boundary Value Problems Derived from Optimal Control


The solvability for a class of abstract two-point boundary value problems derived from optimal control is discussed. By homotopy technique existence and uniqueness results are established under some monotonic conditions. Several examples are given to illustrate the application of the obtained results.
