Chemical fruit thinning has become a popular practice in modern fruit orchards for achieving high quality fruits, reducing costs of hand thinning and promoting return bloom. However, most of the suggested chemical thinners are often concerned for their detrimental effects and environmental problems. 5-Aminolevulic acid (ALA) is a natural, nontoxic,(More)
We consider classes of second order boundary value problems with a nonlinearity f (t, x) in the equations and subject to a multi-point boundary condition. Criteria are established for the existence of nontrivial solutions, positive solutions, and negative solutions of the problems under consideration. The symmetry of solutions is also studied.
