  • The main purpose of this paper is to establish the existence and multiplicity of positive solutions for a fourth-order boundary value problem with integral condition. By using a new technique of construct a positive cone, we apply the Krasnoselskii compression/expansion and Leggett-Williams fixed point theorems in cones to show our multiplicity results. Finally, a particular case is studied, and the existence of multiple solutions is proved for two different particular functions.
