Abstract

We present sufficient conditions for the existence of solutions of second-order two-point boundary value and fractional order functional di fferential equation problems in a space where self distance is not necessarily zero. For this, fi rst we introduce a Ciric type generalized F-contraction and F- Suzuki contraction in a metric-like space and give relevance to fixed point results. To illustrate our results, we give throughout the paper some examples.
