ABSTRACT. Green’s function for an even-order focal problem, where the derivatives alternate between nabla and delta derivatives, is found, and several examples are given for standard time scales. The signs of the function and its derivatives are determined, and whether a symmetry condition holds for an arbitrary time scale is also discussed. The results are then applied to give existence criteria for a positive solution to a nonlinear boundary-value problem
