We use the fractional integrals in order to describe dynamical processes in the fractal medium. We consider the ''fractional'' continuous medium model for the fractal media and derive the fractional generalization of the equations of balance of mass density, momentum density, and internal energy.

We consider the description of the fractal media that uses the fractional integrals. We derive the fractional generalizations of the equation that defines the medium mass. We prove that the fractional integrals can be used to describe the media with noninteger mass dimensions. The fractional equation of continuity is considered.
Fractional generalization of an exterior derivative for calculus of variations is defined. The Hamilton and Lagrange approaches are considered. Fractional Hamilton and Euler–Lagrange equations are derived. Fractional equations are obtained by fractional variation of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian that have only integer derivatives.
We consider a one-dimensional chain of coupled linear and nonlinear oscillators with long-range powerwise interaction. The corresponding term in dynamical equations is proportional to 1//n-m/alpha+1. It is shown that the equation of motion in the infrared limit can be transformed into the medium equation with the Riesz fractional derivative of order alpha,… (More)
The notion of fractional dynamics is related to equations of motion with one or a few terms with derivatives of a fractional order. This type of equation appears in the description of chaotic dynamics, wave propagation in fractal media, and field theory. For the fractional linear oscillator the physical meaning of the derivative of order ao2 is dissipation.… (More)
We derive the fractional generalization of the Ginzburg–Landau equation from the variational Euler–Lagrange equation for fractal media. To describe fractal media we use the fractional integrals considered as approximations of integrals on fractals. Some simple solutions of the Ginzburg–Landau equation for fractal media are considered and different forms of… (More)

The one-dimensional chain of coupled oscillators with long-range power-law interaction is considered. The equation of motion in the infrared limit are mapped onto the continuum equation with the Riesz fractional derivative of order α, when 0 < α < 2. The evolution of soliton-like and breather-like structures are obtained numerically and compared for both… (More)
