A Uniform Method to Ulam–Hyers Stability for Some Linear Fractional Equations

  • JinRong WangEmail author

In this paper, we first utilize fractional calculus, the properties of classical and generalized Mittag-Leffler functions to prove the Ulam–Hyers stability of linear fractional differential equations using Laplace transform method. Meanwhile, Ulam–Hyers–Rassias stability result is obtained as a direct corollary. Finally, we apply the same techniques to discuss the Ulam’s type stability of fractional evolution equations, impulsive fractional evolutions equations and Sobolev-type fractional evolution equations.
