1 Introduction
Here we consider the nonlinear non-local problem of the form
αD x (t) = f (t,x (t),...,x (t)) +g (t,x (t −r ),...,x (t −r )),t ∈ (0,T), T < ∞, (1)i i 1 n i 1 1 n n
x(t)= (t)for t < 0 and lim (t)=0, (2)
−t→0
1−αI x(t)| =0, (3)t=0
awhere D denotes the Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative of order aÎ (0, 1), x(t)
=(x (t), x (t), ..., x (t))’,where ‘ denote the transpose of the matrix, and f, g :[0, T]×1 2 n i i
nR ® R are continuous functions,F(t)=(j(t)) are given matrix and O is the zeroi n×1
matrix, r ≥ 0, j = 1, 2, ..., n, are constant delays.j
Recently, much attention has been paid to the existence of solution for fractional
differential equations because they have applications in various fields of science and
engineering. We can describe many physical and chemical processes, biological systems,
etc., by fractional differential equations (see [1-9] and references therein).
In this work, we discuss the existence, uniqueness and uniform of the solution of
stability non-local problem (1)-(3). Furthermore, as an application, we give some
examples to demonstrate our results.
For the earlier work we mention: De la Sen  investigated the non-negative
solution and the stability and asymptotic properties of the solution of fractional differential
dynamic systems involving delayed dynamics with point delays.

Then there exists a unique solution ×Î X of the problem (1)-(3).
Proof Let tÎ (0, T). Then equation (1) can be written as

Integrating both sides, we obtain

From (3), we get

integral equation (4).El-Sayed and Gaafar Advances in Difference Equations 2011, 2011:47 Page 5 of 8
Now we complete the proof by proving the equivalence between the integral
equation (4) and the non-local problem (1)-(3). Indeed:
1-a 1-a 1-aSince xÎ C and I x(t)Î C (I), and f, g Î C(I)then I f(t), I g(t)Î C(I).n n i i i i
1-aOperating by I on both sides of (4), we get
1−α 1−α αI x (t)= I I {f (t,x (t),...,x (t)) +g (t,x (t −r ),...,x (t −r ))}i i 1 n i 1 1 n n
= I{f (t,x (t),...,x (t))+g (t,x (t −r ),...,x (t −r ))}.i 1 n i 1 1 n n
Differentiating both sides, we obtain
1−αDI x (t) = DI{f (t,x (t),...,x (t))+g (t,x (t −r ),...,x (t −r ))},i i 1 n i 1 1 n n
which implies that
αD x (t) = f (t,x (t),...,x (t)) +g (t,x (t −r ),...,x (t −r )), t > 0,i i 1 n i 1 1 n n
which completes the proof of the equivalence between (4) and (1).
Now we prove that + .Since f(t, x (t), ..., x (t)), g(t, x (t-r ), ..., x (t-lim x =0t→0 i i 1 n i 1 1 n

Similarly, we can prove
αlim I g (t,x (t −r ),...,x (t −r )) = 0.i 1 1 n n

Then from (4),lim + x (t) = 0. Also from (2), we have lim − (t) = O.t→0 i t→0
Now for tÎ (-∞, T], T < ∞, the continuous solution x(t)Î (-∞, T] of the problem

In this section we study the stability of the solution of the non-local problem (1)-(3)

any ε > 0, there exists δ > 0 such that for any two solutions x(t)=(x (t), x (t), ..., x (t))’1 2 n
