We study the existence of solutions of nonlinear discrete boundary value problems Δ2u(t1)+μ1u(t)+g(t,u(t))=h(t), tT, u(a)=u(b+2)=0, where T:={a+1,, b+1}, h:T, μ1 is the first eigenvalue of the linear problem Δ2u(t1)+μu(t)=0, tT, u(a)=u(b+2)=0, g:T× satisfies some “asymptotic nonuniform” resonance conditions, and g(t,u)u0 for u.
