## Abstract

We study the existence of positive solutions of the functional-differential system

\(u_{1}^{\prime \prime}\left( t\right) +a_{1}\left( t\right) f_{1}\left(u_{1}(g(t\right) ),u_{2}\left( g\left( t\right) \right) )=0,\)

\(u_{2}^{\prime \prime}\left( t\right) +a_{2}\left( t\right) f_{2} u_{1}\left( g\left( t\right) \right) ,u_{2}\left( g\left( t\right)\right) )=0,\)

\((0<t<1)\), subject to linear boundary conditions. We prove the existence of at least one positive solution by using the vector version of Krasnoselskii’s fixed point theorem in cones.
