Fractional Calculus Day @ UCMerced

Fractional Calculus Day @ UCMerced

Fractional calculus (FC) is about differentiation or integration of non-integer orders. The concept of fractional calculus has tremendous potential to change the way we see, model, and control the nature around us. Using integer order calculus, behaviors of many complex systems are being said to be “anomalous” such as “anomalous relaxation”, “anomalous diffusion” etc. It has already been known that “anomalous is normal” from observation and modeling point of view if fractional calculus is used. Meanwhile, beneficial uses of the mathematical tool of fractional calculus from engineering point of view are being shown and (hopefully) fractional calculus will become an enabler for new science discoveries.
