Let D α denote the Riemann-Liouville fractional differential operator of order α. Let 1 < α < 2 and 0 < β < α. Define the operator L by L = D α − aD β where a ∈ R. We give sufficient conditions for the existence of solutions of the nonlinear fractional boundary value problem Lu(t) + f (t, u(t)) = 0, 0 < t < 1, u(0) = 0, u(1) = 0.
INTRODUCTION Our objectives were to examine mononuclear cell gene expression profiles in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and healthy controls and to compare subsets with and without atherosclerosis to determine which genes' expression is related to atherosclerosis in SLE. METHODS Monocytes were obtained from 20 patients with SLE and 16… (More)
