$u^((i))(a) = u^((i))(b), i=0,1,2,3,$
The difficulties in the odd derivatives are overcome due to the following arguments: the control on the third derivative is done by a Nagumotype condition and the bounds on the first derivative are obtained by lower and upper solutions, not necessarily ordered.
By this technique, not only it is proved the existence of a periodic solution, but also, some qualitative properties of the solution can be obtained.
