# On Some Grüss-Type Fractional Inequalities Using Saigo Fractional Integral Operator

**Academic Editor:**Nasser Saad

#### Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to establish some new fractional integral inequalities of Grüss-type via the Saigo fractional integral operator.

#### 1. Introduction

Grüss inequality is an inequality which establishes a connection between the integral of the product of two functions and the product of the integrals of the two functions. In 1935, Grüss proved the following well-known classical integral inequality; see [1, 2].

Theorem 1 (see [2]). *Let be two integrable functions such that and for all ; , and are constant; then
**
where the constant is sharp.*

In the past decade, many researchers had numerous generalizations, variants, and extensions of Grüss inequality done in literature; to mention a few, see [1–12] and the references cited therein.

Recently, many authors have studied the fractional integral inequalities via Caputo, Riemann-Liouville, and -fractional integral; see [6, 13–21]. Some authors have studied the Saigo fractional integral operator; for example, we refer the reader to [22–29] and references cited therein. In [19], Dahmani et al. gave the following fractional integral inequality using Riemann-Liouville fractional integral.

In literature few results have been obtained on some fractional integral inequalities using Hadamard fractional integral and Saigo fractional integral operator in [25, 26, 30–32]. Our purpose in this paper is to establish some new results using Saigo fractional integral.

#### 3. Grüss-Type Fractional Integral Inequality

In this section, we establish Grüss-type fractional integral inequality involving Saigo fractional integer operator (4), for which we assume the following.

There exist two integrable functions and on , such that

There exist two integrable functions and on , such that

Lemma 5. *Suppose that is an integrable function on and and are two integrable functions on . Assume that the condition holds.**Then, for all , , , , one has

*Proof. *Let be an integrable function on . For all , we have
Consider
Clearly, function positive since for all . Multiplying both sides of (11) by , then integrating resulting identity with respect to from to , we get

Multiplying both sides of (13) by and is positive since for all , and defined as in (12). Then integrating resulting identity with respect to from to , we have
It follows that

It follows that

Then, multiplying both sides of (20) by which is defined by (12) and is positive because for all . Then integrating resulting identity with respect to from to , we have

Again, multiplying both sides of (21) by which is defined by (12) and is positive because for all since each term of (12) is positive. Then integrating resulting identity with respect to from to , we have
Applying the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality to (22), we have
Since and , we have
Thus we have
Combining (23) and (25) we get the required inequality (17).

Theorem 8. *Suppose that is an integrable function defined on and condition holds. Then for all , , , , , , ,

*Proof. *From the condition , for all , we have
which implies that
Multiplying both sides of (28) by which is defined by (12) and remain positive because for all since each term of (12) is positive. Then integrating resulting identity with respect to from to , we get
Therefore,

Multiplying (30) by , , which remains positive. Then integrating the resulting identity with respect to from to , we have

Multiplying both sides of (35) by , which is defined by (12) and remain positive because for all , since each term of (12) is positive. Then integrating the resulting identity with respect to from to , we get
Therefore,
Multiplying (37) by , ), which remains positive. Then by integrating the resulting identity with respect to from to , we have

This gives the desired inequality . Using the following condition we prove ()–():
