This paper treats the existence of one or several positive eigenvalues for some nth order differential equations with conjugate boundary conditions. The approach is to employ a well-known result on the existence of positive eigenvalues for Hammerstein integral equations obtained recently by the author. Closed intervals which the eigenvalues belong to are studied and applied to obtain new results on the existence of multiple positive eigenvalues.
