Recent Progress in Fractal Dynamics and Applications

Call for Papers

In recent years, fractional calculus applications have attracted many researchers from various areas of science and engineering. A great variety of the fractional dynamical models have arisen in mathematical physics including the fractional heat transfer, the fractional fluid, solid mechanics and rock physics, the fractional traffic flows, the fractional quantum mechanics, and many other topics in theoretical and computational physics. The main objective of this special issue is to give a chance to the researchers to establish an international forum to present some new results in these and/or related topics based on fractional dynamical models.

All the submissions are expected to have some original ideas and modern approaches. Papers on newly emerging areas of fractal dynamics are especially welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fractional mathematical models for mathematical physics (e.g. fractional heat transfer, fractional fluid, solid mechanics and rock physics, the fractional traffic flows and the fractional quantum mechanics)
  • Fractional and multiscale problems in modern theoretical and applied physics like computational physics, quantum mechanics, traffic flows
  • Computational and optimization problems in fractional differential equations arising in the above and related mathematical physical problems (e.g. ADM, HAM, VIM, heat balance integral method, wavelet method and related topics)
  • Local fractional approach for describing above mathematical physics
  • Local fractional differential equations arising in above mathematical physics
  • Real world problems in the above mathematical physics
  • Other related applications of fractal and fractional calculus
