Existence of Positive Solutions for Fourth-Order Three-Point Boundary Value Problems
Boundary Value Problems volume 2007, Article number: 068758 (2008)
We are concerned with the nonlinear fourth-order three-point boundary value problem,,,,. By using Krasnoselskii's fixed point theorem in a cone, we get some existence results of positive solutions.
