Multiplicity of positive solutions to period boundary value problems for second order impulsive differential equations. (English) Zbl 1193.34058

The authors consider the impulsive boundary value problem
\[ \begin{aligned} &-x''(t) + \rho^2x = f(t,x), \quad t\neq t_k, t \in [0,2\pi],\\ &\Delta x(t_k) = I_k(x(t_k)),\;-\Delta x'(t_k) = J_k(x(t_k)),\;k = 1,\dots,p, \\ &x(0) = x(2\pi),\quad x'(0) = x'(2\pi), \end{aligned} \]
where \(0 < t_1 < \dots < t_p < 2\pi\), \(\rho > 0\); the functions \(f\), \(I_k\), \(J_k\) are continuous. Existence and multiplicity results for positive solutions are obtained. As a main tool the fixed point theorem in cones is used.
