  Fractional calculus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Notice here that fraction is then a misnomer for the exponent, since it need not be rational, but the term fractional calculus has become traditional.
As far as the existence of such a theory is concerned, the foundations of the subject were laid by Liouville in a paper from 1832.
The fractional derivative of a function to order a is often now defined by means of the Fourier or Mellin integral transforms.

 Differintegral - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, the differintegral is the combined differentiation/integration operator used in fractional calculus.
The operator does not define a seperate function, but is a notation style for taking both the fractional derivative and the fractional integral of the same expression.
See the page on fractional calculus for the general context.

 Applications of Fractional Calculus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Fractional calculus concerns the generalization of differentiation and integration to non-integer (fractional) orders.
Although fractional calculus is a natural generalization of calculus, and although its mathematical history is equally long, it has, until recently, played a negligible role in physics.
Many applications of fractional calculus amount to replacing the time derivative in an evolution equation with a derivative of fractional order.

 Initialized Fractional Calculus
The fractional calculus (which admits of integrals and derivatives of non-integer order) dates back almost to the origin of the better-known ordinary (integer-order) calculus, but thus far has been treated more as a mathematical curiosity than as a scientific and engineering tool.
The application of the fractional calculus to scientific and engineering problems has been inhibited by difficulties that arise from the basic definitions given heretofore for integrals and derivatives of arbitrary order.
Going beyond viscoelasticity, the initialized fractional calculus can be applied to problems that arise in a variety of scientific, engineering, and purely mathematical disciplines, including creep, percolation, material science, viscous fluid behavior, heat transfer, batteries, electromagnetics, control, communications, filtering, and chaotic systems.

An example of the latter, talked about more in depth in the next article, is the fractional advection-dispersion equation approach, where the intricacies of heterogeneity and its effect on solute transport are accounted for by a dispersion tensor with a fractional power.
Fractional calculus is not a new idea, with roots tracing back to at least 1695.
In practical terms, the fractional advection-dispersion equation has both forward and backward memory such that the a fractional derivative incorporates global effects into what would ordinarily be a local derivative.

The formal relationship between heavy-tailed delay distributions, hyperbolically decaying of the packet delay auto-covariance function and fractional differential equation is shown.
The new interpretation of fractional calculus opens up the new area of using this well-developed mathematical tool in order to understand the local and global characteristics of the packet traffic behaviour.
We have shown, that dynamics of the packet passing in the virtual connection in TCP/IP networks is described by the equations in fractional derivative and corresponds to processes with long-range-dependency.

The fractional time derivative is a very effective means to describe anomalous attenuation of arbitrary frequency dependency.
In contrast, the time fractional derivative is better suited to describe the anomalous diffusions of memory media.
Besides the above fractional calculus modelings, we also developed a time-domain integer-order PDE strategy to model the broadband pulse signal propagation, which uses the standard damped wave equation and frequency decomposion.

A growing body of literature on diffusion processes within spatially hierarchical, or multiscale, materials has been directed at a re-examination of the fractional order calculus as a tool for capturing the behavior of transport phenomena observed in the materials' natural analogs, such as rocks.
Because low-frequency electromagnetic induction is also a diffusion process (in contrast to the wave-like behavior at higher frequencies), we have been investigating the utility of fractional calculus in modeling and interpretation of electromagnetic geophysical data.
To better understand the effects of a frational derivative/itegral operator on simple functions, the case for the unit function, f=1, is presented here (based on figure 4.1.1 in "The Fractional Calculus" by K. Oldham and J. Spanier, Academic Press, 1970).

This is the topic of Fractional Order Derivatives (or Integrals), aka Fractional Calculus, and was studied by a bunch of mathematicians in early 1900s and late 1800s, including Riemann and a whole bunch of big names my brain's too dusty and rusty to recall.
Even sticking with the gamma, it turns out that fractional order derivatives have a kind of looseness - the operator used in the electrochemistry paper, and seen elsewhere, is not the one you and I are playing with.
