A Caputo boundary value problem in Nabla fractional calculus

Julia St. Goar, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


Boundary value problems have long been of interest in the continuous differential equations context. However, with the advent of new areas like Nabla Fractional Calculus, we may consider such problems in new contexts. In this work, we will consider several right focal boundary value problems, involving a Caputo fractional difference operator, in the Nabla Fractional Calculus context. Properties of the Green's functions for each of these boundary value problems will be investigated and, in the case of a particular boundary value problem, used to establish the existence of positive solutions to a nonlinear version of the boundary value problem.
