Using a fixed point theorem of general α-concave operators, we present in this paper criteria which guarantee the existence and uniqueness of positive solutions for two classes of nonlinear perturbed Neumann boundary value problems for second-order differential equations. The theorems for Neumann boundary value problems obtained are very general.
