Existence of Solutions of a Two-Point Boundary Value Problem
A two-point boundary value problem with a non-negative parameter Q arising in the study of surface tension induced flow of a liquid metal or semiconductor is studied. We prove that the problem has at least one solution for Q ≥ 0. This improves a recent result that the problem has at least one solution for 0 ≤ Q ≤ 13.21.
