ABSTRACT

By using the properties of modified Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative, some new delay in- tegral inequalities have been studied. First, we offered explicit bounds for the unknown functions, then we applied the results to the research concerning the boundness, uniqueness and continuous dependence on the initial for solutions to certain fractional differential equations.

1. Introduction

The common differential and integral inequalities are playing an important role in the qualitative analysis of differential equations. At the same time, delay integral and differential inequality have been studied due to their wide applications [1] -[3] . In recent years, the fractional differential and fractional integrals are adopted in var- ious fields of science and engineering. In addition, the fractional differential inequalities have also been studied [4] -[10] . We also need to study the delay differential equation and delay differential inequalities when dealing with certain problems. However, to the best of our knowledge, very little is known regarding this problem [11] . In this paper, we will investigate some delay integral inequalities.

In 2008, Zhiling Yuan, et al. [3] studied the following form delay integral inequality

(1)

then they offered an explicit estimate for, and applied this result to research the properties of solution to certain differential equations.

In 2013, Bin Zheng and Qinghua Feng [6] put forward the following form of fractional integral inequality

, (2)

and they applied the obtained results to study the properties of solution.

In this paper, combining (1) and (2), we will explore the following form of delay integral inequality

. (3)

Now we list some Definitions and Lemmas which can be used in this paper.
