Abstract: In this paper the differential equation $ {y^{(n)}} = f(x,y)$ and associated boundary conditions $ {y^{(r)}}({x_i}) = {y_{ir}}$ for $ i = 1,2, \cdots ,k$ and $ r = 0,1, \cdots ,\lambda (i) - 1$ where $ \lambda (1) + \lambda (2) + \cdots + \lambda (k) = n$ are considered. Sufficient conditions on $ f$ are given to insure the existence of a solution to this $ k$ point boundary value problem. In the special cases when $ k = 2$ or $ k = 3$ sufficient conditions on $ f$ are given to insure both uniqueness and existence of solutions for certain of the boundary value problems.
