This paper deals with the existence of solutions of the periodic boundary value problem of the impulsive Duffing equations: x(t)+αx(t)+βx(t)=f(t,x(t),x(α1(t)),,x(αn(t))),a.e.t[0,T],Δx(tk)=Ik(x(tk),x(tk)),k=1, ,m,Δx(tk)=Jk(x(tk),x(tk)),k=1,,m,x(i)(0)=x(i)(T),i=0,1. Sufficient conditions are established for the existence of at least one solution of above-mentioned boundary value problem. Our method is based upon Schaeffer's fixed-point theorem. Examples are presented to illustrate the efficiency of the obtained results.
