AbstractIn this paper, we consider the following nonlinear fractional m-point boundary value problem where $D_{0+}^{\alpha}$ is the standard Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative. By the properties of the Green function, the lower and upper solution method and fixed-point theorem in partially ordered sets, some new existence and uniqueness of positive solutions to the above boundary value problem are established. As applications, examples are presented to illustrate the main results.
