Positive Solutions for a System of Fractional Differential Equations with Parameters and Coupled Multi-point Boundary Conditions

Johnny Henderson, Rodica Luca, Alexandru Tudorache
Abstract—In this paper, we study a system of nonlinear Riemann-Liouville fractional ordinary differential equations with parameters, subject to coupled multi-point boundary conditions which contain fractional derivatives. By using some properties of the associated Green's functions and the Guo-Krasnosel’skii fixed point theorem, we prove the existence of positive solutions for this problem when the parameters belong to various intervals. Then, we present sufficient conditions for the nonexistence of positive solutions.

Index Terms—Fractional differential equations, multi-point boundary conditions, positive solutions, existence, nonexistence.
