In this paper, we use the fixed point index to study the existence of positive solutions for the fourth-order Riemann–Stieltjes integral boundary value problem −x4t=ft,xt,x′t,x″t,x″′t, t∈0,1x0=x′0=x″′1=0,x″0=αx″t, where f: 0,1×ℝ+×ℝ+×ℝ+×ℝ+⟶ℝ+ is a continuous function and αx″ denotes a linear function. Two existence theorems are obtained with some appropriate inequality conditions on the nonlinearity f, which involve the spectral radius of related linear operators. These conditions allowdoi:10.1155/2019/3748631 fatcat:6agkwsqibzhphn6zx3re2g3ehu
