Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems

Traditionally oriented elementary differential equations texts are occasionally criticized as being col- lections of unrelated methods for solving miscellaneous problems. To some extent this is true; after all, no single method applies to all situations. Nevertheless, I believe that one idea can go a long way toward unifying some of the techniques for solving diverse problems: variation of parameters. I use variation of parameters at the earliest opportunity in Section 2.1, to solve the nonhomogeneous linear equation, given a nontrivial solution of the complementary equation. You may find this annoying, since most of us learned that one should use integrating factors for this task, while perhaps mentioning the variation of parameters option in an exercise. However, there’s little difference between the two approaches, since an integrating factor is nothing more than the reciprocal of a nontrivial solution of the complementary equation. The advantage of using variation of parameters here is that it introduces the concept in its simplest form and

Boundary value problems for impulsive multi-order Hadamard fractional differential equations

Boundary value problems for impulsive multi-order Hadamard fractional differential equations

It has been noticed that most of the work on the topic is based on Riemann-Liouville and Caputo type fractional differential equations. Another kind of fractional derivatives that appears side by side to Riemann-Liouville and Caputo derivatives in the literature is the fractional derivative due to Hadamard introduced in  [], which differs from the preceding ones in the sense that the kernel of the integral (in the definition of Hadamard derivative) contains a logarithmic function of arbitrary exponent. Details and properties of the Hadamard fractional derivative and integral can be found in [, –]. However, this calculus with Hadamard derivatives is still studied less than that of Riemann-Liouville.

Periodic boundary value problems for second order functional differential equations with impulse

Impulsive differential equations describe processes which experience a sudden change of their state at certain moments. The theory of impulse differential equations has been a significant development in recent years and played a very important role in modern applied mathematical models of real processes arising in phenomena studied in physics, population dynamics, chemical technology and biotechnology; see [–].

Existence results of positive solutions for boundary value problems of fractional differential equations

Existence results of positive solutions for boundary value problems of fractional differential equations

where  < α ≤ . The existence results were obtained by the nonlinear alternative theorem. Inspired by above work, the author will be concerned with the boundary value prob- lem (BVP for short in the sequel) (.)-(.). To the best of our knowledge, no contribution exists concerning the existence of solutions for BVP (.)-(.). In the present paper, by ap- plying a new fixed point theorem on cone and Krasnoselskii’s fixed point theorem, some existence results of positive solution for BVP (.)-(.) are obtained. It is worth to point out that the results in this paper are also new even for α =  relative to the correspond- ing literature with regard to the fourth-order boundary value problem. In addition, the conditions imposed in this paper are easily verified.

Three-point boundary value problems of fractional functional differential equations with delay

Three-point boundary value problems of fractional functional differential equations with delay

Recently, there have been many papers focused on boundary value problems of frac- tional ordinary differential equations [–] and an initial value problem of fractional functional differential equations [–]. But the results dealing with the boundary value problems of fractional functional differential equations with delay are relatively scarce [–]. It is well known that in practical problems, the behavior of systems not only depends on the status just at the present, but also on the status in the past. Thus, in many

Periodic boundary value problems for impulsive conformable fractional integro-differential equations

Periodic boundary value problems for impulsive conformable fractional integro-differential equations

The monotone iterative technique coupled with the method of lower and upper solu- tions provides an effective way to obtain two sequences which approximate the extremal solutions between lower and upper solutions of nonlinear differential and impulsive dif- ferential (fractional or non-fractional ordered) equations; see, for instance, [–]. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first paper establishing the impulsive frac- tional differential equations via the conformable fractional calculus developed by []. By means of a new maximal principle and new definitions of lower and upper solutions, the monotone iterative technique will be used in our investigation of the problem (.).

Antiperiodic Boundary Value Problems for Second-Order Impulsive Ordinary Differential Equations

Antiperiodic Boundary Value Problems for Second-Order Impulsive Ordinary Differential Equations

Impulsive differential equations, which arise in biology, physics, population dynamics, economics, and so forth, are a basic tool to study evolution processes that are subjected to abrupt in their states see 1–4. Many literatures have been published about existence of solutions for first-order and second-order impulsive ordinary differential equations with boundary conditions 5–19, which are important for complementing the theory of impulsive equations. In recent years, the solvability of the antiperiodic boundary value problems of first-order and second-order differential equations were studied by many authors, for example, we refer to 20–32 and the references therein. It should be noted that antiperiodic boundary value problems appear in physics in a variety of situations 33, 34. Recently, the existence results were extended to antiperiodic boundary value problems for first-order impulsive differential equations 35, 36. Very recently, Wang and Shen 37 investigated the antiperiodic boundary value problem for a class of second-order differential equations by using Schauder’s fixed point theorem and the lower and upper solutions method.

Periodic boundary value problems for two classes of nonlinear fractional differential equations

We have proved the existence of solutions for two classes of fractional differential equa- tions with periodic boundary value conditions, where certain nonlinear growth conditions of the nonlinearity need to be satisfied. The problem is issued by applying the Leggett– Williams norm-type theorem for coincidences. We also provide examples to make our results clear.

Approximate method for boundary value problems of anti-periodic type for differential equations with ‘maxima’

Approximate method for boundary value problems of anti-periodic type for differential equations with ‘maxima’

In this paper, we study boundary condition () in the case when the function g(x, y) is nondecreasing with respect to its second argument y. So, the anti-periodic boundary value problem is a partial case of boundary condition (). Note that similar problems are investi- gated for ordinary differential equations [], delay differential equations [] and impulsive differential equations [], and some approximate methods are suggested. The presence of the maximum of the unknown function requires additionally some new comparison results, existence results as well as a new algorithm for constructing successive approxi- mations to the exact unknown solution.

Multiple positive solutions for nonlocal boundary value problems of singular fractional differential equations

Multiple positive solutions for nonlocal boundary value problems of singular fractional differential equations

Compared with the existing literature, this paper has the following two new features. First, different from [], infinite-point boundary value conditions are considered in this paper. At the same time, the nonlinearity f in this paper permits singularities with respect to both the time and the space variables which is seldom considered at present. Second, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the existence of multiple positive solutions for BVP (). As to multiple positive solutions, it is worth pointing out that conditions imposed on f are different from that in []. To achieve this goal, first we convert the expression of the unique solution into an integral form and then get the Green function BVP (). After further discussion of the properties of the Green function, a suitable cone is constructed to obtain the main result in this paper by means of the Guo-Krasnoselskii fixed point theorem.

Positive Solutions of Boundary Value Problems for System of Nonlinear Fourth-Order Differential Equations

Positive Solutions of Boundary Value Problems for System of Nonlinear Fourth-Order Differential Equations

Fourth-order nonlinear differential equations have many applications such as balancing condition of an elastic beam which may be described by nonlinear fourth-order ordinary differential equations. Concerning the studies for singular and nonsingular case, one can refer to [1–10]. However, there are not many results on the system for nonlinear fourth- order di ff erential equations. In this paper, by using topological degree theory and cone theory, we study the existence of the positive solutions and the multiple positive solutions for singular and nonsingular system of nonlinear fourth-order boundary value problems. Our conclusions and conditions are di ff erent from the ones used in [1–10] for single equations.

On two boundary-value problems of functional integro-differential equations with nonlocal conditions

On two boundary-value problems of functional integro-differential equations with nonlocal conditions

Mathematical modelling of real-life problems usually results in functional equations, of various types appear in many applications that arise in the fields of mathematical analysis, nonlinear functional analysis, mathematical physics, and engineering. An interesting feature of functional integral equations is their role in the study of many problems of functional integro-differential equations. Several different techniques were proposed to study the existence of solutions of the functional integral equations in appropriate function spaces. Although all of these techniques have the same goal, they differ in the function spaces and the fixed point theorems to be applied. Consider the following boundary value problems of Fredholm functional integro-differential equations.
