Existence of positive solutions to a discrete fractional boundary value problem and corresponding Lyapunov-type inequalities

Amar Chidouh

Abstract. We prove existence of positive solutions to a boundary value problem depending on discrete fractional operators. Then, corresponding discrete fractional Lyapunov-type inequalities are obtained.

Keywords: fractional difference equations, Lyapunov-type inequalities, fractional boundary value problems, positive solutions.
