Abstract: We obtain existence theorems for semilinear equations of the form Lx = Nx, where the operators L and N satisfy a weakly inward condition and are such that L - N is A-proper. In particular, results involving positive and multiple solutions are proved.

Keywords:  Semilinear equations, existence theorems, fixed point index.
