Positive solutions to singular second-order boundary value problems for dynamic equations

Curtis Kunkel and Alex Lancaster

Vol. 12 (2019), No. 6, 1069–1080
Abstract

We study singular second-order boundary value problems with mixed boundary conditions on an infinitely discrete time scale. We prove the existence of a positive solution by means of a lower and upper solutions method and the Brouwer fixed-point theorem, in conjunction with perturbation methods used to approximate regular problems.
