Title: Boundedness of solutions to fourth order differential equations
with oscillatory restoring and forcing terms
Author: Babatunde S. Ogundare (Obafemi Awolowo Univ., Ile-Ife, Nigeria)
Abstract:
This article concerns the fourth order differential equation
$$
x^{(iv)}+ax'''+bx''+g(x')+h(x)=p(t).
$$
Using the Cauchy formula for the particular solution of
non-homogeneous linear differential equations with constant
coefficients, we prove that the solution and its derivatives
up to order three are bounded.
