We consider a partial differential equation associated with a mathematical model describing the concentration of nutrients in blood which interferes directly on the erythrocyte sedimentation rate in the case of an average fluid velocity equal to zero. Introducing the fractional derivative in the Caputo sense, we propose a time-fractional mathematical model(More)
