Theory, Methods, and Applications of Fractional Calculus

Description

In the recent years, fractional calculus has played a very important role in various fields. Based on the wide applications in engineering and sciences such as physics, mechanics, chemistry, and biology, research on fractional ordinary or partial differential equations and other relative topics is active and extensive around the world. In the past few years, the increase of the subject is witnessed by hundreds of research papers, several monographs, and many international conferences.

This special issue will be a devoted topic to high current interest falling within the scope of The Scientific World Journal with impact factor 1.730 and will attract many papers of the highest quality. The objective of this special issue is to highlight the importance of fractional operators and their applications and let the readers of this journal know about the possibilities of this new tool. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Mathematical analysis of fractional theoretical models
  • New methods for solving fractional differential equations
  • Applications of fractional operators, including fractional models
  • Controllability of fractional systems of differential equations or numerical methods applied to the solutions of fractional differential equations applications in physics, mechanics, and so forth
  • Iteration methods for solving partial and ordinary fractional equations
  • Numerical functional analysis and applications
  • Local and nonlocal boundary value problems for fractional partial differential equations
  • Stochastic partial fractional differential equations and applications
  • Computational methods in fractional partial differential equations
  • Mathematical and computer modelling
  • Applications of fractional calculus to real world problems
