System of nonlocal resonant boundary value problems involving p-Laplacian

Published Online: 2018-08-06 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ms-2017-0149


Our aim is to study the existence of solutions for the following system of nonlocal resonant boundary value problem


where the function ϕ : ℝn → ℝn is given by ϕ (s) = (φp1(s1), …, φpn(sn)), s ∈ ℝn, pi > 1 and φpi : ℝ → ℝ is the one dimensional pi -Laplacian, i = 1,…,n, f : [0,1] × ℝn × ℝn → ℝn is continuous and g : [0,1] → ℝn is a function of bounded variation. The proof of the main result is depend upon the coincidence degree theory.
