Book Summary

This book is a monograph on the theory of fractional calculus formulated by an operator-based method. The differential operator in the classical fractional calculus is extended to a general linear operator which satisfies Leibniz's rule. The key idea in this theory is a function sequence produced by iterated applications of such a linear operator to a function in some well-defined function space. This book covers various contents of the fractional calculus such as the commutators, the function sequence called the lambda-sequence in this book, the generating function of the lambda-sequence, the integral representation of the lambda-sequence, the discrete representation of the fractional differ-integration, the composition rule between an integer power and a complex power of (d/dx), the generalized fractional integration by parts, the basics of the fractional calculus of variations, the fractional differ-integration of composite functions, the Laplace and Fourier transforms of the fractional differ-integration, the extended function space composed of distributions, the fractional calculus on the coset space, the lambda-sequence in such an extended function space and its integral representation, and the derivation of special functions of complex order. Miscellaneous problems in mathematics and physics are also illustrated as applications of this theory.
