We consider the properties of Green’s function for the nonlinear fractional differential equation boundary value problem: , where , is the standard Riemann-Liouville derivative. Here our nonlinearity may be singular at . As applications of Green’s function, we give some multiple positive solutions for singular boundary value problems by means of Schauder fixed-point theorem.
