A solution to the more than 300-years old problem of geometric and physical interpretation of fractional integration and dieren tiation (i.e., integration and dieren tiation of an arbitrary real order) is suggested for the Riemann-Liouville fractional integration and dieren tiation, the Caputo fractional dieren tiation, the Riesz potential, and the Feller potential. It is also generalized for giving a new geometric and physical interpretation of more general convolution integrals of the…

On the k-Riemann-Liouville fractional integral and applications

Fractional calculus is a generalization of ordinary differentiation and integration to arbitrary noninteger order. The subject is as old as differential calculus and goes back to times when G.W.

Geometric interpretation of fractional-order derivative

Abstract A new geometric interpretation of the Riemann-Liouville and Caputo derivatives of non-integer orders is proposed. The suggested geometric interpretation of the fractional derivatives is

Introduction of Derivatives and Integrals of Fractional Order and Its Applications

Fractional calculus is a branch of classical mathematics, which deals with the generalization of operations of differentiation and integration to fractional order. Such a generalization is not merely

Analysis of the Keller-Segel Model with a Fractional Derivative without Singular Kernel

A detailed analysis of the uniqueness of the coupled-solutions of the modified system and some numerical simulations to see the effect of the fractional order are presented.

Geometric Interpretation for Riemann–Liouville Fractional-Order Integral

A new method is proposed to plot the image of Riemann–Liouville (RL) fractional-order integral. The meanings of the image are discussed, including the mathematical expression of the image, the

What is a fractional derivative?

A Numerical Algorithm of Discrete Fractional Calculus by using Inhomogeneous Sampling Data

This paper presents an efficient numerical method to realize discrete models of fractional derivatives and integrals which imply derivatives and integrals of arbitrary real order. This approach is

A new Definition of Fractional Derivative and Fractional Integral

In this paper, we introduce three different definitions of fractional derivatives, namely Riemann-Liouville derivative, Caputo derivative and the new formula Caputo expansion formula, and some basics

Analysis of Fractional Differential Equations

We discuss existence, uniqueness, and structural stability of solutions of nonlinear differential equations of fractional order. The differential operators are taken in the Riemann–Liouville sense



On the paper by R. R. Nigmatullin “fractional integral and its physical interpretation”

The goal of establishing a clear relationship between fractial geometry and fractional calculus has been long sought by the scientific community. A number of intuitive or heuris­ tic suggestions in

On physical interpretations of fractional integration and differentiation

Is there a relation between fractional calculus and fractal geometry? Can a fractional order system be represented by a causal dynamical model? These are the questions recently debated in the

Fractional integral and its physical interpretation

A relationship is established between Cantor's fractal set (Cantor's bars) and a fractional integral. The fractal dimension of the Cantor set is equal to the fractional exponent of the integral. It

Fractional integral associated to generalized cookie-cutter set and its physical interpretation

This paper is based on Nigmatullin's study. When the `residual' memory set is a generalized cookie-cutter set on , using various hypotheses it is proved that the fractional exponent of a fractional

Linear Models of Dissipation whose Q is almost Frequency Independent-II

Summary Laboratory experiments and field observations indicate that the Q of many non-ferromagnetic inorganic solids is almost frequency independent in the range 10-2-107 cis, although no single

Einstein ’ s Static Universe : An Idea Whose Time Has Come Back ?

W hat is the shape of space? Is the universe finite or infinite? Did the world have a beginning, or has it always existed? These fundamental questions have intrigued and baffled humans since the most

愛麗思漫遊奇境記 = Alice's adventures in Wonderland

This thesis has two aims. The first one is to elucidate how Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) functions as a Bildungsroman, and the other one is to demonstrate how the novel also has a coming

Adventures in wonderland
