Existence principles for the~BVP $(\phi(u'))'=f(t,u,u'),$ $u(t_i+)= J_i(u(t_i)),$ $u'(t_i+)= M_i(u'(t_i)),$ $i=1,2,\dots, m,$ $u(0)=u(T),$ $u'(0)=u'(T)$ are presented. They are based on the method of lower/upper functions which are not well-ordered. We continue our investigations from our previous preprint (155/2004), where existence principles based on well-ordered lower/upper functions were proved and from our previous papers, where we delivered related results for the case that $\phi$ is the identity.

Keywords:   $\phi$-Laplacian, impulses, lower/upper functions, periodic solutions, topological degree.
