Boundary value problems for difference equations have been studied extensively by many authors (see, e.g.[1–3,7,8]). One particular area receiving current attention is the question of obtaining optimal eigenvalue intervals of boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations, as well as for finite difference equations. Many of these work have used the Guo- [1,5] Krasnosel’skii fixed-point theorem to obtain eigenvalue intervals based on positive solutions inside a cone (see, e.g. [1,2,4,5,7,9]).

Abstract

In this paper, we consider discrete second order three-point boundary value problems. By exploring the properties of the associated Green’s function and applying Guo-Krasnosel’skii’s fixed point theorem, we show the existence of eigenvalue intervals.
