Abstract: We shall provide conditions on non-positive function f(t, u1, . . . , un-1) so that the boundary value problem {(E) u(n)(t) + f(t, u(t), u′(t), . . . , u(n-2)(t)) = 0 for t ∈ (0, 1) and n ≥ 2, (BVP) {u(i)(0) = 0, 0≤i≤n - 3, (BC) αu(n-2)(0) - βu(n-1)(0) = 0, γu(n-2)(1) + δu(n-1)(1) = 0, has at least one positive solution. Then, we shall apply this result to establish several existence theorems which guarantee the multiple positive solutions. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
