#### Abstract

In the article, we present several conformable fractional integrals’ versions of the Hermite-Hadamard type inequalities for GG- and GA-convex functions and provide their applications in special bivariate means.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be an interval and let be a convex function. Then the well known HH (Hermite-Hadamard) inequality [1] states thatfor all . It is well known that the convexity has been playing a key role in mathematical programming, engineering, and optimization theory. Recently, many generalizations and extensions for the classical convexity can be found in the literature [2–14]. In [15, 16], Niculescu defined the GA- and GG-convex functions as follows.

*Definition 1 (see [15]). *A function is said to be GA-convex if the inequality holds for all and .

*Definition 2 (see [16]). *A function is said to be GG-convex if the inequality holds for all and .

The conformable fractional derivative of order at for a function was defined in [18] as follows: is said to be -fractional differentiable if the conformable fractional derivative of of order exists. The fractional derivative at is defined as . Theorem 8 for the conformable fractional derivative can be found in the literature [18].

Theorem 8 (see [18]). *Let and be -differentiable at . Then *(i)* for all *(ii)* if is a constant*(iii)* for all *(iv)*(v)**(vi)** if is differentiable at .** In addition, if is differentiable.*

*Recently, the conformable integrals and derivatives have been the subject of intensive research; many remarkable properties and inequalities involving the conformable integrals and derivatives can be found in the literature [19–37].*

*Anderson [38] provided the conformable integral version of the HH inequality as follows.*

*Theorem 11 (see [38]). If and is an -fractional differentiable function such that is increasing, then the inequalityholds. Moreover if is decreasing on , then we haveIf , then this reduces to the classical HH inequality.*

*In this paper, we shall establish the Hermite-Hadamard type inequalities for GA and GG-convex functions via conformable fractional integrals and give their applications in the special bivariate means.*

Our approach is based on an identity involving the conformable fractional integrals, the Hölder inequality, and the power mean inequality. The proven results generalized some previously obtained results. As applications, we provide several inequalities for some special bivariate means. The present idea may stimulate further research in the theory of inequalities for other generalized integrals, for example, as presented in [35–37].*
