Positive Solutions for Nonlinearth-Order Singular Nonlocal Boundary Value Problems

Abstract

We study the existence and multiplicity of positive solutions for a class ofth-order singular nonlocal boundary value problems,, where. The singularity may appear at and/or. The Krasnosel'skii-Guo theorem on cone expansion and compression is used in this study. The main results improve and generalize the existing results.
