By applying the Guo-Lakshmikantham fixed point theorem on high dimensional cones, sufficient conditions are given to guarantee the existence of positive solutions of a system of equations of the form
Applications are given to three boundary value problems: A 3-dimensional 3+3+3 order boundary value problem with mixed nonlocal boundary conditions, a 2-dimensional 2+4 order nonlocal boundary value problem discussed in , and a 2-dimensional 2+2 order nonlocal boundary value problem discussed in . In the latter case we provide some fairly simpler conditions according to those imposed in .
