Positivity and hierarchical structure of Green’s functions of 2-point boundary value problems for bending of a beam
Green’s functions to 2-point simple type self-adjoint boundary value problems for bending of a beam under relatively strong tension on an elastic foundation are studied. We have 9 different Green’s functions. All are positive-valued and have a suitable hierarchical structure.
