Eigenvalue Problems for Systems of Nonlinear Boundary Value Problems on Time Scales

Abstract

Values of λ are determined for which there exist positive solutions of the system of dynamic equations, , , for , satisfying the boundary conditions, , where is a time scale. A Guo-Krasnosel'skii fixed point-theorem is applied.
