Nonlinear differential equations with Marchaud-Hadamard-type fractional derivative in the weighted space of summable functions. (English) Zbl 1132.26314

Summary: The paper is devoted to the study of a Cauchy-type problem for the nonlinear differential equation of fractional order \(0<\alpha<1\), \[ \begin{aligned} &( D^\alpha_{0+,\mu}y)(x)=f(x,y(x)), \\ &(x^\mu\mathcal J^{1-\alpha}_{0+,\mu}y)(0+)=b,\quad b\in\mathbb R,\end{aligned} \] containing the Marchaud-Hadamard-type fractional derivative \((D^\alpha_{0+,\mu}y)(x)\), on the half-axis \(\mathbb R^+=(0,+\infty)\) in the space \(X^{p,\alpha}_{c,0}(\mathbb R_+)\) defined for \(\alpha>0\) by \[ X^{p,\alpha}_{c,0}(\mathbb R_+)=\{y\in X^p_c(\mathbb R_+): D^\alpha_{0+,\mu}y\in X^p_{c,0}(\mathbb R_+)\}. \] Here \(X^p_{c,0}(\mathbb R_+)\) is the subspace of \(X^p_c(\mathbb R_+)\) of functions \(g\) with compact support on infinity: \(g(x)\equiv 0\) for large enough \(x>R\). The equivalence of this problem and a nonlinear Volterra integral equation is established. The existence and uniqueness of the solution \(y(x)\) of the above Cauchy-type problem is proved by using the Banach fixed point theorem. The solution in closed form of the above problem for the linear differential equation with \(\{f(x,y(x))=\lambda y(x)+f(x)\}\) is constructed. The corresponding assertions for the differential equations with the Marchaud-Hadamard fractional derivative \((D_{0+}^\alpha y)(x)\) are presented. Examples are given.
