Fixed Point Theorems on Nonlinear Binary Operator Equations with Applications
The existence and uniqueness for solution of systems of some binary nonlinear operator equations are discussed by using cone and partial order theory and monotone iteration theory. Furthermore, error estimates for iterative sequences and some corresponding results are obtained. Finally, the applications of our results are given.
In recent years, more and more scholars have studied binary operator equations and have obtained many conclusions; see [1–6]. In this paper, we will discuss solutions for these equations which associated with an ordinal symmetric contraction operator and obtain some results which generalized and improved those of [3–6]. Finally, we apply our conclusions to two-point boundary value problem with two-degree super-linear ordinary differential equations.
