In this paper, we consider the fractional boundary value problem
$$\left\{\begin{array}{l}\displaystyle D^{a}_{0+}u(t)+f(t,u(t))=0,\quad t\in(0,\infty),~\alpha\in (1,2),\\[2mm]\displaystyle u(0)=0,\quad\lim_{t\rightarrow\infty}D^{a-1}_{0+}u(t)=\beta u(\xi),\end{array}\right.$$
where D0+a is the standard Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative. By means of fixed point theorems, sufficient conditions are obtained that guarantee the existence of solutions to the above boundary value problem. The fractional modeling is a generalization of the classical integer-order differential equations and it is a very important tool for modeling the anomalous dynamics of numerous processes involving complex systems found in many diverse fields of science and engineering.
