Monotonicity Results for Delta and Nabla Caputo and Riemann Fractional Differences via Dual Identities

Thabet Abdeljawad, Bahaaeldin Abdalla


Recently, some authors have proved monotonicity results for delta and nabla fractional differences separately. In this article, we use dual identities relating delta and nabla fractional difference operators to prove shortly the monotonicity properties for the (left Riemann) nabla fractional differences using the corresponding delta type properties. Also, we proved some monotonicity properties for  the Caputo fractional differences. Finally, we use the $Q-$operator dual identities to prove monotonicity results for the right fractional difference operators.
