Abstract

We give a proof of Brouwer's fixed point theorem and related results

by means of basic calculus. More specifically, if the mapping is ,

our proof relies only on Green's Theorem.

Then, we prove the existence of solutions for some boundary value problems.

In particular, we shall give an elementary proof of a theorem by Lazer on

the existence of periodic solutions for a second order differential

equation.
