Multiple solutions to boundary value problem for impulsive fractional differential equations

Rosana Rodríguez-López and Stepan Tersian


We study the multiplicity of solutions for fractional differential equations subject to boundary value conditions and impulses. After introducing the notions of classical and weak solutions, we prove the existence of at least three solutions to the impulsive problem considered.
