Abstract
In this paper, we investigate the existence of positive solutions for secondorder nonlinear threepoint integral
boundary value problems. By using the LeraySchauder fixed point theorem, some sufficient conditions
for the existence of positive solutions are obtained, which improve the results of literature Tariboon and
Sitthiwirattham [J. Tariboon, T. Sitthiwirattham, Boundary Value Problems, 2010 (2010), 111].
Keywords
 Positive solution
 nonlinear threepoint integral boundary value problems
 LeraySchauder fixed point theorem.
