Lyapunov Functions and Stability of Caputo Fractional Differential Equations with Delays
The direct Lyapunov method is extended to nonlinear Caputo fractional differential equations with variable bounded delays. A brief overview of the literature on derivatives of Lyapunov functions is given and applications to fractional equations are discussed. Advantages and disadvantages are illustrated with examples. Sufficient conditions using three derivatives of Lyapunov functions are given and our results are compared with results in the literature. Also fractional order extensions of comparison principle are established.
