This paper is devoted to study the existence of integral solutions for a nondensely defined semilinear functional differential equations involving the Riemann-Liouville derivative in a Banach space. The arguments are based upon Mönch’s fixed point theorem and the technique of measures of noncompactness.

Key words and phrases: Partial differential equations, fractional derivative, fractional integral, fixed point, semigroups, integral solutions, finite delay, measure of noncompactness, fixed point, Banach space.


Este artículo es dedicado al estudio de existencia de soluciones integrales para ecuaciones diferenciales funcionales semilineales envolviendo la derivada de Riemann-Liouville en un espacio de Banach. Los argumentos se basan en un teorema de punto fijo de Mönch y la técnica de no compacidad.
