We introduce a discrete-time fractional calculus of variations on the time scale hZ, h > 0. First and second order necessary optimality conditions are established. Examples illustrating the use of the new Euler-Lagrange and Legendre type conditions are given. They show that solutions to the considered fractional problems become the classical discrete-time(More)
The theory of the calculus of variations was recently extended to the more general time scales setting, both for delta and nabla integrals. The primary purpose of this paper is to further extend the theory on time scales, by establishing some basic diamond-alpha dynamic integral inequalities. We prove generalized versions of Hölder, Cauchy-Schwarz,(More)
