#### Abstract

The local fractional decomposition method is applied to approximate the solutions for Fokker-Planck equations on Cantor sets with local fractional derivative. The obtained results give the present method that is very effective and simple for solving the differential equations on Cantor set.

#### 1. Introduction

The Fokker-Planck equation [1–16] plays an important role in describing the system dynamics. For example, the Langevin approach for microscopic dynamics [1], the dynamics of energy cascade in turbulence [2], the population dynamics [3], the chaotic universe dynamics [4], the fatigue crack growth dynamics [5], the fission dynamics [6], the dynamics of distributions of heavy quarks [7] and financial returns [8], the spin relaxation dynamics [9], the electron dynamics of plasmas and semiconductors [10], the critical dynamics [11], and the fiber dynamics [12] had been investigated by using the Fokker-Planck equation (see [13, 14] and the cited references therein) and its 3 solution was presented by the different methods. There are some methods for solving the differential equations, such as Adomian decomposition, Homotopy perturbation, Variational iteration, Metropolis Monte Carlo, multiscale finite element and finite difference methods (see, e.g., [15–20]), and others [21–25].

In recent years, fractional calculus was applied to model many fractal dynamical systems [26–30]. The fractional Fokker-Planck equation [26–38], as one of dynamical equations, has interested many researchers. Its solution was also investigated in [39–41]. However, the above fractional Fokker-Planck equation did not describe the nondifferentiable behaviors of dynamical systems because of the limit of the fractional operators. In order to overcome the above problems, the local fractional calculus was developed and applied to the fractal phenomenon in science and engineering [42–53]. Local fractional Fokker-Planck equation [45], which was an analog of a diffusion equation with local fractional derivative, was suggested as follows: where the local fractional operator was the Kolwankar-Gangal local fractional differential operator. In [46], the Fokker-Planck equation on a Cantor set with local fractional derivative was presented as follows: where the local fractional partial differential operator of order () was defined as [42–44] with Analytical and approximate solutions for local fractional differential equations were presented by different researchers (see [43, 46–53] and the cited references therein). Applications of local fractional decomposition method were presented (see [51–53] and the cited references therein). Our main purpose of the paper is to apply the local fractional decomposition method to solve the Fokker-Planck equations on a Cantor set.

In this paper, Section 2 gives the recent results for local fractional integral operator. The local fractional decomposition method is analyzed in Section 3. The approximate solutions are presented in Section 4. Finally, conclusions are given in Section 5.

#### 5. Conclusions

In this work, we had used the local fractional decomposition method to solve the Fokker-Planck equations on Cantor sets which were described by the local fractional differential operator. The nondifferentiable solutions were obtained. The obtained results show that the present method is a very effective and powerful mathematical tool for finding the nondifferentiable solutions for the local fractional differential equations.
