Positive Solutions for a Nonlocal Resonant Problem of First Order
We study a first order differential system subject to a nonlocal condition. Our goal in this paper is to establish conditions sufficient for the existence of positive solutions when the considered problem is at resonance. The key tool in our approach is Leggett-Williams norm-type theorem for coincidences due to O’Regan and Zima. We conclude the paper with several examples illustrating the main result.
