Book Description

March 2, 2000 9810234570 978-9810234577
Fractional calculus is a collection of relatively little-known mathematical results concerning generalizations of differentiation and integration to noninteger orders. While these results have been accumulated over centuries in various branches of mathematics, they have until recently found little appreciation or application in physics and other mathematically oriented sciences. This situation is beginning to change, and there are now a growing number of research areas in physics which employ fractional calculus. This volume provides an introduction to fractional calculus for physicists, and collects easily accessible review articles surveying those areas of physics in which applications of fractional calculus have recently become prominent.

4.0 out of 5 stars A reader from Tampa June 7, 2000
Format:Paperback
This book seems to summarize much of the research on this topic, but it does have some interesting aspects to it. It is not a physics book, but presents some information on certain specific uses, such as in biology, thermodynamics and a couple of other areas. But it is useful, esp in conjunction with the book by Miller and Ross. They complement each other well. For application it is a good book, but it does not have plug and chug equations in it.
