Zbl 1244.34113

Summary: We study the existence of positive solutions for the nonlinear four-point singular boundary value problem with higher-order \(p\)-Laplacian dynamic delay differential equations on time scales, subject to some boundary conditions. By using the fixed-point index theory, the existence of positive solution and many positive solutions for nonlinear four-point singular boundary value problem with \(p\)-Laplacian operator are obtained.
