An application of an avery type fixed point theorem to a second order antiperiodic boundary value problem

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this article, we show the existence of an antisymmetric solution to the second order boundary value problem $x''+f(x(t))=0,\; t\in(0,n)$ satisfying antiperiodic boundary conditions $x(0)+x(n)=0,\; x'(0)+x'(n)=0$ using an Avery et. al. fixed point theorem which itself is an extension of the traditional Leggett-Williams fixed point theorem. The antisymmetric solution satisfies $x(t)=-x(n-t)$ for $t\in[0,n]$ and is nonnegative, nonincreasing, and concave for $t\in[0,n/2]$. To conclude, we present an example.
