Boundary Value Problems 2012, 2012:64  doi:10.1186/1687-2770-2012-64

Published: 22 June 2012


This article deals with the differential equations of fractional order on the half-line. By the recent Leggett-Williams norm-type theorem due to O’Regan and Zima, we present some new results on the existence of positive solutions for the fractional boundary value problems at resonance on unbounded domains.
