      In this paper, we consider boundary value problems for systems of nonlinear third-order differential equations. By applying the fixed point theorems of cone expansion and compression of norm type and Leggett-Williams fixed point theorem, the existence of multiple positive solutions is obtained. As application, we give some examples to demonstrate our results.
