## Description

This talk presents an application made from an extension of the Leggett-Williams fixed-point theorem—which requires neither of the functional boundaries to be invariant—to a second-order right focal dynamic boundary value problem on a time scale. To conclude, Lyons will provide a non-trivial example.

Existence of a Positive Solution for a Right-Focal Dynamic Boundary Value Problem

Mailman-Hollywood Building - Room 310

This talk presents an application made from an extension of the Leggett-Williams fixed-point theorem—which requires neither of the functional boundaries to be invariant—to a second-order right focal dynamic boundary value problem on a time scale.
