ABSTRACT

In this work, we study existence theorem of the initial value problem for the system of fractional differential equations where denotes standard Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative, and is a square matrix. At the same time, power-type estimate for them has been given.

1. Introduction

Let denote the matrix over real fields or complex fields. For

here is the usual space of continuous functions on which is a Banach space with the norm

The space is defined by

(see [1]).

The existence of solution of initial value problems for fractional order differential equations have been studied in many literatures such as [1-4]. In this paper, we present the analysis of the system of fractional differential equations

where denotes standard Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative, where

and is a square.

To prove the main result, we begin with some definitions and lemmas. For details, see [1-5].

Definition 1.1 Let be a continuous function defined on and. Then the expression

is called left-sided fractional derivatives of order

Definition 1.2 Let be a continuous function defined on and Then the expression

is called left-sided fractional integral of order

Lemma 1.3 Given with eigenvalues

in any prescribed order, there is a unitary matrix such that is upper triangular with diagonal entries That is, every square matrix is unitarily equivalent to triangular matrix whose entries are the eigenvalues of in a prescribed order. Further more, if and if all the eigenvalues of are real, then may be chosen to be real and orthogonal.

Lemma 1.4 Assume that with fractional derivative of order that belongs to. Then

Lemma 1.5 (Schauder’s fixed theorem) Assume is a relative subset of a convex set in a normed space Let be a compact map with. Then either

(A1) has a fixed point in, or

(A2) there is a and a such that

Now, let’s us give some hypotheses:

H1: is continuous on and is such that

H2: is continuous on and is such that

Lemma 1.6 Let If we assume that then the initial value problem

The existence of a solution to Problem (3) can be formulated as a fixed point equation where

Define

Clearly, it is closed, convex and nonempty.

Step I. We shall prove that we note that

We note that

Since it will be sufficient to impose

In view of the assumption the second estimate is satisfied if say and is chosen sufficiently small.

Step II. We shall prove that the operator is compact. To prove the compactness of

defined by (5), it will be sufficient to argue on the operator

defined in this way:

We have where the operator

Turn out to be compact from classical sufficient conditions, since. By Lemma 1.5, we have that Problem (3) has least a solution.

The proof is complete.

Theorem 2.1 Let then initial problem (*) has a solution where

Now, let’s consider the problem (**).

Clearly, the problem (**) is equivalent to the following n problems

Similarly, there has at least a solution in

for the rest n-2 initial problem in (**), denote by respectively. And therefore, there has at least a solution

of the problem (**). Let it is required for us.

The proof is completed.

Since the problem (**) is equivalent to the following n problems

for where is the th entries of the vector Next, we shall discuss these equations in (9).

Theorem 2.2 Assume that the right hand of these equations in (9) satisfied H1, and for some If the solution of the problems (**) denoted by
