Abstract

‎This paper gives an abstract order-type existence theorem for second order nonlocal boundary value problems at resonance and obtain existence criteria for at least two positive solutions‎, ‎where $f$ is a continuous function‎. ‎Our results generalize or extend related results in the literature and give a positive answer to the question raised in the literature‎. ‎An example is given to illustrate the new results.
