Special Issues: Initial and Boundary Value Problems for Differential Equations

In this paper, we discuss the existence and uniqueness of solutions for a new kind of Langevin equation involving Riemann-Liouville as well as Caputo fractional derivatives, and variable coefficient, supplemented with nonlocal-terminal fractional integro-differential conditions. The proposed study is based on modern tools of functional analysis. We also extend our discussion to the associated inclusions problem. For the applicability of the obtained results, several examples are constructed. Some interesting observations are also presented.
