Boundary Value Problems 2013, 2013:112  doi:10.1186/1687-2770-2013-112

Published: 3 May 2013


By using fixed point results on cones, we study the existence and uniqueness of positive solutions for some nonlinear fractional differential equations via given boundary value problems. Examples are presented in order to illustrate the obtained results.
