Description

Many dynamic systems and optimal control processes possess nonlocal character, and either the performance index or the differential equations governing the dynamics of the system involve fractional derivatives. Fractional models usually have higher accuracy than the traditional integer order differential equation models in depicting long term memory effects and viscoelastic processes.

Owing to the salient features and high accuracy of fractional mathematical modelling, it has attracted increasing research interest in the control community and mathematics field, and various fractional mathematical modelling and analysis methodologies have been developed, such as fractional calculus theory, control design of fractional problems, parameter estimation, and numerical methods. However, there are some unsolved problems and challenges in fractional mathematical modelling and optimal control problems, which deserve further investigation. New advancements in fractional models and control problems will promote the development of analysis theory, computational methods, and mathematical physics as well as their applications to differential and integral equations.

The aim of this Special Issue is to report and promote the latest achievements and recent developments in fractional mathematical modelling and optimal control. We welcome researchers to submit original research articles as well as review articles in relation to the following listed topics
