Abstract

Existence principles and theorems are established for the nonlinear problem Lu=f(t,u) where Lu=(pu)+hu is a quasi-differential operator and f is a Carathéodory function. We prove a maximum principle for the operator L and then we show the validity of the upper and lower solution method as well as the monotone iterative technique.
