Positive solutions and nonlinear multipoint conjugate eigenvalue problems

Paul W. Eloe & Johnny Henderson

Values of $\lambda$ are determined for which there exist solutions in a cone of the $n^{th}$ order nonlinear differential equation,
$u^{(n)} = \lambda a(t) f(u)$ 0 less than $t$ less than 1
satisfying the multipoint boundary conditions,
$$u^{(j)}(a_i) = 0\,,\quad 0\leq j\leq n_i -1\,,\quad 1 \leq i \leq k\,,$$
where $0 = a_1$ less than $a_2$ less than ... less than $a_k  = 1$, and $\sum _{i=1}^k n_i = n$,
where a and f are nonnegative valued, and where both $\lim\limits_{|x| \to 0^+} f(x)/|x|$ and $\lim\limits_{|x| \to\infty} f(x)/|x|$ exist.
