In this paper, we consider the Neumann boundary value problem with a parameter λ∈(0,): By using fixed point theorems in a cone, we obtain some existence, multiplicity and nonexistence results for positive solutions in terms of different values of λ. We also prove an existence and uniqueness theorem and show the continuous dependence of solutions on the parameter λ.
