We study periodic solutions for nonlinear second-order ordinary differential problem 𝑥 + 𝑓 ( 𝑡 , 𝑥 , 𝑥 ) = 0 . By constructing upper and lower boundaries and using Leray-Schauder degree theory, we present a result about the existence and uniqueness of a periodic solution for second-order ordinary differential equations with some assumption.
