ON THE EXISTENCE OF MILD SOLUTIONS TO SOME SEMILINEAR FRACTIONAL INTEGRO-DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS ´ EKATA ´ T. DIAGANA, G. M. MOPHOU, AND G. M. N’GUER Abstract. This paper deals with the existence of a mild solution for some fractional semilinear differential equations with non local conditions. Using a more appropriate definition of a mild solution than the one given in [12], we prove the existence and uniqueness of such solutions, assuming that the linear part is the infinitesimal generator of an analytic semigroup that is compact for t > 0 and the nonlinear part is a Lipschitz continuous function with respect to the norm of a certain interpolation space. An example is provided.

1. Introduction Let X be a Banach space and let T > 0. This paper is aimed at discussing about the existence and the uniqueness of a mild solution for the fractional semilinear integro-differential equation with nonlocal conditions in the form:  Z t  β   a(t − s)h(s, x(s)) ds, t ∈ [0, T ],  D x(t) = −Ax(t) + f (t, x(t)) + 0 (1)     x(0) + g(x) = x , 0

where the fractional derivative Dβ (0 < β < 1) is understood in the Caputo sense, the linear operator −A is the infinitesimal generator of an analytic semigroup (R(t))t≥0 that is uniformly bounded on X and compact for t > 0, the function a(·) is real-valued such that Z T a(s) ds < ∞, (2) aT = 0

to describe for instance, the diffusion phenomenon of a small amount of gas in a transparent tube can give better result than using the usual local Cauchy Problem x(0) = x0 . Let us observe also that since Deng’s paper, such problem has attracted several authors including A. Aizicovici, L. Byszewski, K. Ezzinbi, Z. Fan, J. Liu, J. Liang, Y. Lin, T.-J. Xiao, H. Lee, etc. (see for instance [1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 8, 7, 14, 11, 13] and the references therein). This problem has been studied in Mophou and N’Gu´er´ekata [12]. In this paper, we revisit that work and use a more appropriate definition for mild solutions. Namely, we investigate the existence and the uniqueness of a mild solution for the fractional semilinear differential equation (1), assuming that f is defined on [0, T ] × Xα × Xα where Xα = D(Aα ) (0 < α < 1), the domain of the fractional powers of A. The rest of this paper is organized as follows. In Section 2 we give some known preliminary results on the fractional powers of the generator of an analytic compact semigroup. In Section 3, we study the existence and the uniqueness of a mild solution for the fractional semilinear differential equation (1). We give an example to illustrate our abstract results.

2. Preliminaries Let I = [0, T ] for T > 0 and let X be a Banach space with norm k · k. Let  B(X), k · kB(X) be the Banach space of all linear bounded operators on X and A : D(A) → X be a linear operator such that −A is the infinitesimal generator of an analytic semigroup of uniformly bounded linear operators (R(t))t≥0 , which is compact for t > 0. In particular, this means that there exists M > 1 such that (3)

supkR(t)kB(X) ≤ M. t≥0

Moreover, we assume without loss of generality that 0 ∈ ρ(A). This allows us to define the fractional power Aα for 0 < α < 1, as a closed linear operator on its domain D(Aα ) with inverse A−α (see [8]). We have the following basic properties for fractional powers Aα of A: Theorem 2.1. ([15], pp. 69 -75). Under previous assumptions, then: (i) Xα = D(Aα ) is a Banach space with the norm kxkα := kAα xk for x ∈ D(Aα ); (ii) R(t) : X → Xα for each t > 0; (iii) Aα R(t)x = R(t)Aα x for each x ∈ D(Aα ) and t ≥ 0; EJQTDE, 2010 No. 58, p. 2

(iv) For every t > 0, Aα R(t) is bounded on X and there exist Mα > 0 and δ > 0 such that kAα R(t)kB(X) ≤

(4)

Mα −δt e ; tα

(v) A−α is a bounded linear operator in X with D(Aα ) = Im(A−α ); and (vi) If 0 < α ≤ ν, then D(Aν ) ֒→ D(Aα ). Remark 2.2. Observe as in [9] that by Theorem 2.1 (ii) and (iii), the restriction Rα (t) of R(t) to Xα is exactly the part of R(t) in Xα . Let x ∈ Xα . Since kR(t)xkα = kAα R(t)xk = kR(t)Aα xk ≤ kR(t)kB(X) kAα xk = kR(t)kB(X) kxkα , and as t decreases to 0 kR(t)x − xkα = kAα R(t)x − Aα xk = kR(t)Aα x − Aα xk → 0, for all x ∈ Xα , it follows that (R(t))t≥0 is a family of strongly continuous semigroup on Xα and kRα (t)kB(X) ≤ kR(t)kB(X) for all t ≥ 0. Lemma 2.3. [9] The restriction Rα (t) of R(t) to Xα is an immediately compact semigroup in Xα , and hence it is immediately norm-continuous. Now, let Φβ be the Mainardi function: Φβ (z) =

We set α ∈ (0, 1) and we will denote by Cα , the Banach space C([0, T ], Xα ) endowed with the supnorm given by kxk∞ := sup kxkα , t∈I

for x ∈ C.

3. Main Results In addition to the previous assumptions, we assume that the following hold. (H1 ) The function f : I × Xα → X is continuous and satisfies the following condition: there exists a function µ1 (t) ∈ L∞ (I, R+ ) such that kf (t, x, ) − f (t, y)k ≤ µ1 (t)kx − ykα for all t ∈ I, x, y ∈ Xα . (H2 ) The function h : I × Xα → X is continuous and satisfies the following condition: there exists a function µ2 (t) ∈ L∞ (I, R+ ) such that kh(t, x, ) − h(t, y)k ≤ µ2 (t)kx − ykα for all t ∈ I, x, y ∈ Xα . (H3 ) The function g : Cα → Xα is continuous and there exists a constant b such that kg(x) − g(y)kα ≤ bkx − yk∞ for all x, y ∈ Cα . Theorem 3.1. Suppose assumptions (H1 )-(H3 ) hold and that Ωα,β,T < 1 where # "  βMα Γ(2 − α)T β(1−α)  kµ1 kL∞ (I,R+ ) + aT kµ2 kL∞ (I,R+ ) . Ωα,β,T = M b + Γ(1 + β(1 − α))(β(1 − α)) If x0 ∈ Xα , then (1) has a unique mild solution x ∈ Cα . EJQTDE, 2010 No. 58, p. 5

Proof. Define the nonlinear integral operator F : Cα → Cα by (F x)(t)

= Sβ (t) (x0 − g(x)) , Z t (t − s)β−1 Pβ (t − s) [f (s, x(s)) + Kx(s)] ds. + 0

where K is given by (9). In view of Lemma 2.4- (ii), the integral operator F is well defined. Now take t ∈ I and x, y ∈ Cα . We have k(F x)(t) − (F y)(t)kα

which according to Lemma 2.5 and (H3 ) gives k(F x)(t) − (F y)(t)kα ≤ M bkx − yk∞ Z t βMα Γ(2 − α) (t − s)β(1−α)−1 k(f (s, x(s)) − f (s, y(s)))k ds + Γ(1 + β(1 − α)) Z 0 t βMα Γ(2 − α) + (t − s)β(1−α)−1 k(K x(s) − K y(s))k ds Γ(1 + β(1 − α)) 0 Since (H2 ) and (2) hold, we can write Z s kKx(s) − Ky(s)k = a(s − τ ) kh(τ, x(τ )) − h(τ, y(τ ))k dτ Z0 s a(s − τ )µ2 (τ ) kx(τ ) − y(τ )k dτ ≤ 0

aT kµ2 kL∞ (I,R+ ) kx − yk∞ .

Thus, using (H1 ) we obtain k(F x)(t) − (F y)(t)kα ≤M bkx − yk∞ Z βMα Γ(2 − α)kx − yk∞ t + (t − s)β(1−α)−1 µ1 (s) ds Γ(1 + β(1 − α)) 0 βMα Γ(2 − α)T β(1−α) aT kµ2 kL∞ (I,R+ ) kx − yk∞ + Γ(1 + β(1 − α))(β(1 − α) ≤M bkx − yk∞ βMα Γ(2 − α)T β(1−α) + kx − yk∞ kµ1 kL∞ (I,R+ ) Γ(1 + β(1 − α))(β(1 − α)) β(1−α) βMα Γ(2 − α)T aT + kx − yk∞ kµ2 kL∞ (I,R+ ) Γ(1 + β(1 − α))(β(1 − α)) ≤Ωα,β,T kx − yk∞ EJQTDE, 2010 No. 58, p. 6

So we get k(F x)(t) − (F y)(t)k∞

Ωα,β,T (t)kx − yk∞ .

Since Ωα,β,T < 1, the contraction mapping principle enables us to say that, F has a unique fixed point in Cα , Z t x(t) = Sβ (t) (x0 − g(x)) + (t − s)β−1 Pβ (t − s) [f (s, x(s)) + K x(s)] ds 0

which is the mild solution of (1).



Now we assume that (H4 ) The function f : I × Xα → X is continuous and satisfies the following condition: there exists a positive function µ1 ∈ L∞ (I, R+ ) such that kf (t, x)k ≤ µ1 (t), (H5 ) The function h : I × Xα → X is continuous and satisfies the following condition: there exists a positive function µ2 ∈ L∞ (I, R+ ) such that kh(t, x)k ≤ µ2 (t), (H6 ) The function g ∈ C(Cα , Xα ) is completely continuous and there exist λ, γ > 0 such that kg(x)kα ≤ λkxk∞ + γ. Theorem 3.2. Suppose that assumptions (H4 )-(H6 ) hold. If x0 ∈ Xα and (10)

then (1.1) has a mild solution on [0, T ]. Proof. Define the integral operator F : Cα → Cα by (F x)(t)

Let Br = {x ∈ Cα : kxk∞ ≤ r}. We proceed in three main steps. EJQTDE, 2010 No. 58, p. 7

Γ(1 + β(1 − α)) 0 0

Consequently, using the inequality M λ < choice of r above, we get k(F x)(t)kα

which yields M λkxk∞ <

and the

Step 2. We prove that F is continuous. For that, let (xn ) be a sequence of Br such that xn → x in Br . Then f (s, xn (s)) h(t, xn (s))

→ f (s, x(s)), → h(t, x(s)),

n → ∞, n→∞

as both f and h are jointly continuous on I × Xα . Now, for all t ∈ I, we have kF xn − F xkα

and on the other hand using the fact that the functions s 7→ 2µ1 (s)(t − s)β(1−α)−1 and s 7→ (t − s)β(1−α)−1 are integrable on I, by means of the Lebesgue Dominated Convergence Theorem yields t

Hence, since g(xn ) → g(x) as n → ∞ because g is completely continuous on Cα , it can easily be shown that

lim k(F xn ) − (F x)k∞ = 0,

n→∞

as n → ∞. In other words, F is continuous. Step 3. We show that F is compact. To this end, we use the Ascoli-Arzela’s theorem. For that, we first prove that {(F x)(t) : x ∈ Br } is relatively compact in Xα , for all t ∈ I. Obviously,{(F x)(0) : x ∈ Br } is compact. EJQTDE, 2010 No. 58, p. 9

Let t ∈ (0, T ]. For each h ∈ (0, t), ǫ > 0 and x ∈ Br , we define the operator Fh,ǫ by (Fh,ǫ x)(t)

Then the sets {(Fh,ǫ x)(t) : x ∈ Br } are relatively compact in Xα since by Lemma 2.3, the operators Rα (t), t > 0 are compact on Xα . Moreover, using (H1 ) and (4) we have k(F x)(t) − (Fh,ǫ x)(t)kα ≤ Z t Z ǫ

Therefore, the set {(F x)(t) : x ∈ Br } is relatively compact in Xα for all t ∈ (0, T ] and since it is compact at t = 0 we have the relatively compactness in Xα for all t ∈ I. Now, let us prove that F (Br ) is equicontinuous. By the compactness of the set g(Br ), we can prove that the functions F x, x ∈ Br are equicontinuous a t = 0.

In short, we have shown that F (Br ) is relatively compact, for t ∈ I, {F x : x ∈ Br } is a family of equicontinuous functions. Hence by the Arzela-Ascoli Theorem, F is compact. By Schauder fixed point theorem F has a fixed point x ∈ Br , which obviously is a mild solution to (1).  4. Example

Let A be the operator given by Au = −u′′ with domain D(A) := {u ∈ L2 ([0, π]) : u′′ ∈ L2 ([0, π]), u(0) = u(π) = 0}. It is well known that A has a discrete spectrum with eigenvalues of the form n2 , n ∈ N, and corresponding normalized eigenfunctions given by zn (ξ) :=

In addition to the above, the following properties hold: (a) {zn : n ∈ N} is an orthonormal basis for L2 [0, π]; (b) The operator −A is the infinitesimal generator of an analytic semigroup R(t) which is compact for t > 0. The semigroup R(t) is defined for u ∈ L2 [0, π] by R(t)u =
