Existence of Positive Solutions for Boundary Value Problems of Nonlinear Functional Difference Equation with -Laplacian Operator
Boundary Value Problems volume 2007, Article number: 038230 (2007)
The existence of positive solutions for boundary value problems of nonlinear functional difference equations with-Laplacian operator is investigated. Sufficient conditions are obtained for the existence of at least one positive solution and two positive solutions.
