#### Abstract

For the 2nth order equation, (−1)nv(2n)+qv=0, with q continuous, we obtain a Sturm Separation theorem, involving n+1 solutions of the equation, which is somewhat analogous to the classical result that the zeros of two linearly independent solutions of the second order equation separate each other.
