We are concerned with the higher-order nonlinear three-point boundary value problems: with the three point boundary conditions ; where is continuous, are continuous, and are arbitrary given constants. The existence and uniqueness results are obtained by using the method of upper and lower solutions together with Leray-Schauder degree theory. We give two examples to demonstrate our result.
