On the structure of the set of solutions of certain holomorphic two-point boundary value problems

  • H. S. Hassan (a1) and N. G. Lloyd (a1)


Suppose that f: ℝ×ℂN→ℂN is holomorphic in z and continuous in t, and that Φ: ℂN×ℂN→ℂN is holomorphic. Boundary value problems of the form

are considered. The particular interest is in the structure and topological properties of the set of solutions. The paper is motivated by the corresponding properties of the set of periodic solutions of ż = f(t, z) when f is periodic in t. Consideration of this complex equation gives information about the periodic solutions of the real equation ẋ = f(t, x).
