The purpose of this paper is to investigate the existence and uniqueness of positive solutions for the following fractional boundary value problem
Our analysis relies on a fixed-point theorem in partially ordered metric spaces. The autonomous case of this problem was studied in the paper [Zhao et al., Abs. Appl. Anal., to appear], but in Zhao et al. (to appear), the question of uniqueness of the solution is not treated.
We also present some examples where we compare our results with the ones obtained in Zhao et al. (to appear).
