Vatsala [22] is exposed the classical theory of the method of lower and upper solutions and the monotone iterative technique, that give us the expression of the solution as the limit of a monotone sequence formed by functions that solve linear problems related with the nonlinear considered equations.
assuming a one-sided Lipschitz condition in funcion f, two monotone sequences that start at the lower solution a and the upper solution 0 and converge to a solutions [phi] and [PHI], are constructed; moreover every solution U [member of] [[alpha],[beta]] [a, /0] of problem (3.
We show that under suitable conditions on f, there exists a monotone sequence of solutions of linear problems that converges uniformly and rapidly to unique solution of the original nonlinear problem.
We develop the approximation scheme and show that under suitable conditions on f, there exists a bounded monotone sequence of solutions of linear problems that converges uniformly to a solution of the original problem.
