ABSTRACT: In this paper, we generalize the fixed point theorem of cone expansion and compression of norm type to the theorem of functional
type. As an application, the existence of positive solutions for some fourth–order beam equation boundary value problems is
obtained. The emphasis is put on that the nonlinear term is dependent on all lower order derivatives. Acta Mathematica Sinica 01/2006; 22(6):18251830. DOI:10.1007/s101140050806z · 0.42 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The main aim of this paper is to use the continuation theorem of coincidence degree theory
for studying the existence of periodic solutions to a kind of neutral functional differential equation as
follows:
$$
{\left( {x{\left( t \right)}  {\sum\limits_{i = 1}^n {c_{i} x{\left( {t  r_{i} } \right)}} }} \right)}^{{\prime \prime }} = f{\left( {x{\left( t \right)}} \right)}{x}\ifmmode{'}\else$'$\fi{\left( t \right)} + g{\left( {x{\left( {t  \tau } \right)}} \right)} + p{\left( t \right)}.
$$
In order to do so, we analyze the structure of the linear difference operator A : C
2π →C
2π,
$$
{\left[ {Ax} \right]}{\left( t \right)} = x{\left( t \right)}  {\sum\nolimits_{i = 1}^n {c_{i} x{\left( {t  r_{i} } \right)}} }
$$
to determine some fundamental properties first, which we are going to use
throughout this paper. Meanwhile, we also prove some new inequalities which are useful for estimating
a priori bounds of periodic solutions. Acta Mathematica Sinica 12/2005; 21(6):13091314. DOI:10.1007/s1011400505678 · 0.42 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: By the use of continuation theorems and the duality principle it’s proved that for both
homogeneous and nonhomogeneous Sturm–Liouville boundary value problems with Laplacian type
operators, relative superlinearity implies the existence of infinitely many solutions under a few weakly
added conditions. Acta Mathematica Sinica 10/2005; 21(5):10151026. DOI:10.1007/s101140050565x · 0.42 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: In this paper, using some analysis techniques and the continuation theorem of coincidence degree theory, the authors study a kind of nspecies LotkaVolterra population model with multiple deviating arguments. Some new results on the existence of positive periodic solutions are obtained. For the comparison, the model subject to this paper is more general, which includes some known LotkaVolterra type systems, such as competitive systems, predatorprey systems and so on. Meanwhile, the method to estimate a priori bounds of periodic solutions is different from the corresponding ones found in the existing literature. 01/2005; 48(3).

ABSTRACT: In this paper, the problem of absolute stability for general Lurie control systems with multinonlinear feedback terms is
investigated. From the Lyapunov function approach, new necessary and sufficient conditions and some practical sufficient conditions
of absolute stability are derived, which improve the absolute stability for the set. A numerical example illustrates the effectiveness
of the proposed results. Acta Mathematica Sinica 10/2001; 17(4):649656. DOI:10.1007/s101140100110 · 0.42 Impact Factor
