Comparison of eigenvalues for linear differential equations of order 2 n 2n Academic Article uri icon


  • An abstract eigenvalue comparison theorem is proven for u 0 {u_0} -positive linear operators in a Banach space equippped with a cone of nonnegative elements. This result is then applied to certain linear differential equations of order 2n in order to obtain eigenvalue comparison theorems of an integral type."
