We consider the following state dependent boundary-value problem , ; , where is the standard Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative of order , , , , the function is defined as , and the function is defined as , are continuous on and , . Using Banach contraction mapping principle and Leray-Schauder continuation principle, we obtain some sufficient conditions for the existence and uniqueness of the positive solutions for the above fractional order differential equations, which extend some references.
