In this article, we present several new inequalities involving the κ-fractional integral for the integrable function which satisfies one of the following conditions: is preinvex for some ; is bounded; is a Lipschitz function. As applications, we establish new inequalities for the weighted arithmetic and generalized logarithmic means.

1. Introduction

Let be a nonempty interval. Then, a real-valued function is said to be convex (concave) on E if the inequalitytakes place for any and .

We all know that the convexity theory has penetrated into every branch of pure and applied mathematics [120], and it has more and more practical applications in physics, mechanics, statistics, operations research, and even in economics and meteorology [2140]. Many remarkable inequalities in mathematics, control theory, and game theory can be found in the literature [4160] by use of the convexity theory. In the past half century, to research the generalizations and variants for the convexity has always been a hot topic for mathematicians and physicists as well as engineers. Recently, a great deal of generalizations and variants has been made for the convexity, for example, the GA-convexity and GG-convexity [61], s-convexity [62, 63], preinvex convexity [64], strong convexity [6568], and Schur convexity [69].

When we talk about convex functions, we have to mention a classical and most important inequality, which is the well-known Hermite–Hadamard inequality [70] which states that the double inequalityholds for all with if is a convex (concave) function on J and is a nonempty interval. For a long time, numerous researchers have been devoted to the generalizations, improvements, refinements, and variations for inequality (2) [7173].

The aim of this article is to provide new Hermite–Hadamard-type inequalities for certain classes of functions via the κ-fractional integral and give their applications to the bivariate means.

In order to clearly describe and prove our main results in the next sections, we have to recall some definitions which we present in this section.

Definition 1. Let be a nonempty set and be a mapping. Then, is said to be an invex set with respect to the mapping η iffor all and .

Definition 2. Let be an invex set with respect to the mapping . Then, the mapping is said to be preinvex with respect to the mapping η if the inequalityholds for all and .

Definition 3. (see [74]). Let , with , and . Then, the β order κ-fractional integral operators and of are defined byrespectively, whereis the κ-gamma function.
