**Existence of Positive Solutions for Boundary Value Problem of Nonlinear Fractional q-Difference Equation** ()

In this paper, we investigate the existence of positive
solutions for a class of nonlinear *q*-fractional
boundary value problem. By using some fixed point theorems on cone, some
existence results of positive solutions are obtained.
