Abstract In this paper we consider the following two systems of k equations


where f is a vector function and the integrals are meant in the sense of Riemann-Stieltjes. We give conditions on / and g to ensure the existence of at least one solution for the above problems. Our result extends some results in the references.

Keywords: nonlocal boundary value problem; non-resonant boundary value problem; Leray-Schauder degree theory
