A Note on the Paper ”Fractional Order Pettis Integral Equations with Multiple Time Delay in Banach Spaces” by M. Benchohra and F.-Z. Mostefai

Open access


On a recent paper Benchohra and Mostefai [2] presented some existence results for an integral equation of fractional order with multiple time delay in Banach spaces. In contrast to the classical case, when assumptions are expressed in terms of the strong topology, they considered another case, namely with the weak topology. It has some consequences for the proof. We present here some comments and corrections.
