Positive solutions of a three-point boundary-value problem on a time scale

Eric R. Kaufmann

Let $\mathbb{T}$ be a time scale such that $0, T \in \mathbb{T}$. We consider the second order dynamic equation on a time scale
    u^{\Delta\nabla}(t) + a(t)f(u(t)) = 0, 
    \quad t \in (0,T) \cap \mathbb{T},\cr
    u(0) = 0, \quad \alpha u(\eta) = u(T),
where $\eta \in (0, \rho(T)) \cap \mathbb{T}$, and $0 < \alpha <T/\eta$. We apply a cone theoretic fixed point theorem to show the existence of positive solutions.
