17. (Lakshmikantham, Wen and Zhang, 1994) Suppose that p(t, θ) is a p-function. For A > 0, τ ∈ (σ, ∞) (τ may be σ if σ > −∞), let x ∈ C([p(τ, −1), τ + A], Rn ) and ϕ ∈ C([−1, 0], Rn ). Then we have (i) xt is continuous in t on [τ, τ +A] and p˜(t, θ) = p(τ +t, θ)−τ is also a p-function; (ii) if p(τ + t, −1) < τ for t > 0, then there exists −1 < s(τ, t) < 0 such that p(τ + t, s(τ, t)) = τ and p(τ + t, −1) ≤ p(τ + t, θ) ≤ τ, for − 1 ≤ θ ≤ s(τ, t), τ ≤ p(τ + t, θ) ≤ τ + t, for s(τ, t) ≤ θ ≤ 0. Moreover, s → 0 uniformly in τ as t → 0; (iii) there exists a function η ∈ C([p(τ, −1), τ ], Rn ) such that η(p(τ, θ)) = ϕ(θ) for − 1 ≤ θ ≤ 0.

Direct 1 calculation gives that (t − s)q−1 ∈ L 1−q1 [t0 , t], for t ∈ [t0 , t0 + α] and q1 ∈ (0, q). In light of H¨older inequality, we obtain that (t − s)q−1 f (s, xs ) is Lebesgue integrable with respect to s ∈ [t0 , t] for all t ∈ [t0 , t0 + α], and t t0 |(t − s)q−1 f (s, xs )|ds ≤ (t − s)q−1 1 L 1−q1 [t0 ,t] m 1 L q1 [t0 ,t0 +α] . Eqn. ws-book975x65 Fractional Functional Differential Equations or setting u = t0 + s, 1 g(t0 + t, xt0 +t ) − g(t0 , xt0 ) = Γ(q) xt0 = ϕ. 16), we have xt0 +t (θ) = x(p(t0 + t, θ)) = x(˜ p(t, θ) + t0 ) = η(˜ p(t, θ)) + z(˜ p(t, θ)) = η˜t (θ) + z˜t (θ), for t ∈ [0, α].

Note that the frequently used symbol “xt ” (in Hale, 1977; Lakshmikantham, 2008; Lakshmikantham, Wen and Zhang, 1994, xt (θ) = x(t + θ), where −τ ≤ θ ≤ 0, r > 0, r = const) in the theory of functional differential equations with bounded delay is a partial case of the above definition. Indeed, in this case we can put p(t, θ) = t + rθ, θ ∈ [−1, 0]. 16. 14) holds almost everywhere on [t0 , t0 + α]. We need the following lemma relative to p-function before we proceed further, which is taken from Lakshmikantham, Wen and Zhang, 1994.
