We are concerned with the following superlinear fourth-order equation , where are nonnegative constants such that and is a nonnegative continuous function that is required to satisfy some appropriate conditions related to a class satisfying suitable integrability condition. Our purpose is to prove the existence, uniqueness, and global behavior of a classical positive solution to the above problem by using a method based on estimates on the Green function and perturbation arguments.
