#### Abstract

We study a fractional differential equation dynamics model arising from the analysis of real estate asset securitization by using the generalized fixed point theorem for weakly contractive mappings in partially ordered sets. Based on the analysis for the existence and uniqueness of the solution and scientific numerical calculation of the solution, in further study, some optimization schemes for traditional risk control process will be obtained, and then the main results of this paper can be applied to the forefront of research of real estate asset securitization.

#### 1. Introduction

Real estate asset securitization is a kind of important financial derivatives in the world. In the international capital market, by combining with different development pattern of the financial industry and real estate industry, real estate asset securitization has become a class of financial products with rapid development and great vitality. Recently, by SWOT analysis method, one has found that many mathematical models arising from real estate asset securitization can be interpreted by fractional-order differential or difference equations, under suitable initial conditions or boundary conditions, the existence and uniqueness of solution of the fractional-order mechanical model are important and useful. Especially, by examining the numerical simulation and analysis of solution, one can undertake macroscopical analysis and comparative research for real estate securitization process advantages and disadvantages, and find real estate asset securitization may exist problems and risks, and then one can put forward to optimize the views on traditional risk control process. In recent years, fractional-order models have been proved to be more accurate than integer order models; that is, there are more degrees of freedom in the fractional-order models, see [1, 2]. For recent works about fractional-order models, we refer the reader to [3–9] and the references therein.

In this paper, we discuss the existence and uniqueness of positive solutions for the following fractional differential equation with nonlocal Riemann-Stieltjes integral condition arising from the real estate asset securitization where , , and , is the standard Riemann-Liouville derivative.

In (1.1), denotes the Riemann-Stieltjes integral, and is a function of bounded variation, which implies can be a signed measure. Thus the BVP (1.1) reveal that positive or negative values of the linear functionals are viable in some cases. But if or , the BVP become a multipoint boundary value problems or the integral boundary value problems, some kind of positivity on the functionals is often required, for example, in , is often required. Thus the BVP (1.1) include more generalized boundary value conditions. For a detailed description of multipoint and integral boundary conditions on fractional differential equation, we refer the reader to some recent papers (see [10–15]).

Note that the problem (1.1) has been considered by Wang and Li [16], and the authors obtained the existence of one positive solution for (1.1) by using Krasnoselskii’s fixed point theorem on a cone under semipositone case, but the uniqueness of the solution is not treated.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we extend and improve some fixed point theorems for weakly contractive mappings in partially ordered sets by Harjani and Sadarangani [17], we omit many redundant conditions of Theorems 2 and 3 in [17] and obtain better results than those of [17]. In Section 3, the existence and uniqueness of a positive solution for the problem (1.1) are obtained by using a fixed point theorem in partially ordered sets. An example is also given to illuminate the application of the main result.

where (), is the smallest integer greater than or equal to . *

Let , , by standard discuss, we easily reduce the BVP (1.1) to the following modified problems: and the BVP (2.7) is equivalent to the BVP (1.1).

Lemma 2.6 (see [3]). *Given , then the problem

**
which is the Green function of the BVP (2.8).*

Lemma 2.7 (see [3]). *For any , satisfies
*

By Lemma 2.6, the unique solution of the problem is . Let and define as in [4], we can get that the Green function for the nonlocal BVP (2.7) is given by

Throughout the paper, we always assume the following holds. (**H0**) is a increasing function of bounded variation such that for and , where is defined by (2.13).

Lemma 2.8. * Let and ( H0) hold, then satisfies
*

*Proof. *By (2.11) and that is a increasing function of bounded variation, we have
Consequently,

Now, we present a result about the fixed point theorems which is improvement of [17].

Theorem 2.9. *Let be a partially ordered set and suppose that there exists a metric in such that is a complete metric space. Assume that satisfies the following condition: if is a nondecreasing sequence in such that then for all . Let be a nondecreasing mapping, and there exists a constant such that

*Proof. *If , then the proof is finished. Suppose that . Since is a nondecreasing mapping, we obtain by induction that
Put . Then for each integer , from (2.20), the elements and are comparable, we get

If there exists such that then and is a fixed point and the proof is finished. In other case, suppose that for all . Then by (2.21), we have
that is,
Similar to [17], is a Cauchy sequence and then there exists such that since is a complete metric space.

We claim that . In fact,
and taking limit as , , this proves that , consequently, .

*Remark 2.10. * In Theorem 2.9, We do not require that is continuous and is positive in , and . This in essence improve and generalize the corresponding results of Theorem 2 and Theorem 3 in paper [17].

If we consider that satisfies the following condition:
then we have the following theorem, see [17].

Theorem 2.11. *Adding condition (2.25) to the hypotheses of Theorem 2.9, one obtains uniqueness of the fixed point of .*

In our considerations, we will work in the Banach space with the standard norm .

In [20, 21], it is proved that with the classic metric given by satisfies the following condition.

If is a nondecreasing sequence in such that then for all . Moreover, for , as the function is continuous in [0, 1], and satisfies condition (2.25).

#### 3. Main Results

Define the class of function , if , then is nondecreasing, and satisfies is nondecreasing.

The standard functions , for example, , and , and so forth.

Theorem 3.1. *Suppose ( H0) holds, is continuous, and for any fixed , is nondecreasing in on and nonincreasing in on ; moreover, there exist two positive constants , that satisfy
*

*and there exist a function and constants , such that*

*for , with , and .*

*Then problem (1.1) has a unique nonnegative solution.*

*Proof. *Consider the cone

Now, for , we define the operator by
Then from the assumption on and Lemma 2.8, we have

In what follows, we check that hypotheses in Theorems 2.9 and 2.11 are satisfied.

Firstly, the operator is nondecreasing since, by hypothesis, for any

Besides, for
Since
and is nondecreasing, for , we have
where
Note that , then , and is nondecreasing. Thus by Lemma 2.8, for , we have

Finally, taking into account that the zero function, , by Theorem 2.11, problem (1.1) has a unique nonnegative solution.

Theorem 3.2. * If the assumptions of Theorem 3.1 are satisfied, and there exists such that , then the unique solution of (1.1) is positive. (Positive solution means a solution satisfying for .) *

*Proof. *By Theorem 3.1, the problem (1.1) has a unique nonnegative solution, which also is positive.

In fact, otherwise, there exists such that , and
Then
Consequently,
this yields
Note that , then we have

But on the other hand, since , , we have , by the continuity of , we can find a set satisfying and the Lebesgue measure such that for any . This contradicts (3.16). Therefore, , that is, is positive solution of (1.1).

*Example 3.3. *Consider the following boundary value problem with fractional order :
where
Thus the BVP (3.17) becomes the 4-Point BVP with coefficients
Then the BVP (3.17) has a unique positive solution.

*Proof. *Obviously, , , and

On the other hand, we have
Thus , and is increasing. So (**H0**) holds.

Take
Then
and for any , ,
where
Thus and all of condition of Theorem 3.1 are satisfied.

On the other hand, for any , by Theorem 3.2, the BVP (3.17) has a unique positive solution.

In the end, we claim this process and conclusion of paper can be applied to the forefront of research of the real estate asset securitization.
