Description: The 10th edition of **Elementary** **Differential** **Equations** and **Boundary** **Value** **Problems**, like its predecessors, is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, whose interest in **differential** **equations** may sometimes be quite theoretical, sometimes intensely practical, and often somewhere in between. The authors have sought to combine a sound and accurate (but not abstract) exposition of the **elementary** theory of **differential** **equations** with considerable material on methods of solution, analysis, and

Abstract
In this paper, we establish some suﬃcient conditions for the existence of solutions to two classes of **boundary** **value** **problems** for fractional diﬀerential **equations** with nonlocal **boundary** conditions. Our goal is to establish some criteria of existence for the **boundary** **problems** with nonlocal **boundary** condition involving the Caputo fractional derivative, using Banach’s ﬁxed point theorem and Schaefer’s ﬁxed point theorem. Finally, we present four examples to show the importance of these results.

1 Introduction
Fractional diﬀerential **equations** have been of great interest. It is caused both by the in- tensive development of the theory of fractional calculus itself and by the applications.
Apart from diverse areas of mathematics, fractional diﬀerential **equations** arise in rhe- ology, dynamical processes in self-similar and porous structures, ﬂuid ﬂows, electrical networks, viscoelasticity, chemical physics, and many other branches of science; see [–

It is well known that the term ‘elliptic **boundary** **value** problem’ means not only satisfying certain equation in inner points of a manifold, but satisfying some **boundary** conditions as well. But it is not enough. These **boundary** conditions have been assiciated with inner equation, and these conditions of concordance are called Shapiro-Lopatinskii conditions.

Abstract
In this paper, we discuss the existence of positive solutions of fractional diﬀerential **equations** on the inﬁnite interval (0, +∞). The positive solution of fractional diﬀerential **equations** is gained by using the properties of the Green’s function, Leray–Schauder’s ﬁxed point theorems, and Guo–Krasnosel’skii’s ﬁxed point theorem.

In this paper, we study a class of **boundary** **value** **problems** for conformable fractional **differential** **equations** under a new definition. Firstly, by using the monotone iterative technique and the method of coupled upper and lower solution, the sufficient condition for the existence of the **boundary** **value** problem is obtained, and the range of the solution is determined. Then the existence and uniqueness of the solution are proved by the proof by contra- diction. Finally, a concrete example is given to illustrate the wide applicability of our main results.

Upper and lower solution method plays an important role in studying **boundary** **value** **problems** for nonlinear diﬀerential **equations**; see 1 and the references therein. Recently, many authors are devoted to extend its applications to **boundary** **value** **problems** of functional diﬀerential **equations** 2–5. Suppose α is one upper solution or lower solution of periodic **boundary** **value** **problems** for second-order diﬀerential equation; the condition α0 αT is required. A neutral problem is that whether we can define upper and lower solution without assuming α0 αT. The aim of the present paper is to discuss the following second order functional diﬀerential equation
