The Existence and Multiplicity of Solutions for Singular Boundary Value Systems with p-Laplacian


This paper presents sufficient conditions for the existence of positive solutions for the fourth-order boundary value problem system with p-Laplacian operator. The existence of single or multiple positive solutions for the system is showed through the fixed point index theory in cones under some assumptions.
