We are concerned with the existence and form of solutions to nonlinear third-order three-point and multi-point boundary-value problems on general time scales. Using the corresponding Green function, we prove the existence of at least one positive solution using the Guo-Krasnosel'skii fixed point theorem. Moreover, a third-order multi-point eigenvalue problem is formulated, and eigenvalue intervals for the existence of a positive solution are found.
