The role of lower and upper solutions in the generalization of Lidstone problems

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this the authors consider the nonlinear fully equation
              \begin{equation*} u^{(iv)} (x) + f( x,u(x) ,u^{\prime}(x) ,u^{\prime \prime}(x) ,u^{\prime \prime \prime}(x) ) = 0 \end{equation*} for $x\in [ 0,1] ,$ where $f:[ 0,1] \times \mathbb{R} ^{4} \to \mathbb{R}$ is a continuous functions, coupled with the Lidstone boundary conditions, \begin{equation*} u(0) = u(1) = u^{\prime \prime}(0) = u^{\prime \prime }(1) = 0. \end{equation*}
        They discuss how different definitions of lower and upper solutions can generalize existence and location results for boundary value problems with Lidstone boundary data. In addition, they replace the usual bilateral Nagumo condition by a one-sided condition, allowing the nonlinearity to be unbounded$.$ An example will show that this unilateral condition generalizes the usual one and stress the potentialities of the new definitions.
