Abstract: We consider the equation

$\displaystyle \sum_{k=0}^{n} a_k(t)x^{(n-k)}(t)=0\;\;(t > 0),$

where $ a_0(t)\equiv 1;\;a_k(t)\;(k=1, ..., n)$ are bounded continuous functions. It is assumed that all the roots $ r_k(t)\;\;(k=1, ..., n)$ of the polynomial $ z^n+a_1(t)z^{n-1}+ ... +a_n(t)$ are real for all $ t\geq 0$. Sharp estimates for the Green function to the Cauchy problem and their derivatives are derived.
