Boundary Value Problems 2013, 2013:25  doi:10.1186/1687-2770-2013-25

Published: 11 February 2013


The existence and localization result is obtained for a multivalued Dirichlet problem in a Banach space. The upper-Carathéodory and Marchaud right-hand sides are treated separately because in the latter case, the transversality conditions derived by means of bounding functions can be strictly localized on the boundaries of bound sets.
