mathematicians in the middle of the 19th century. Some 100 years later,
engineers and physicists have found applications for these concepts in their
areas. However there has traditionally been little interaction between these
two communities. In particular, typical mathematical works provide extensive
findings on aspects with comparatively little significance in applications,
and the engineering literature often lacks mathematical detail and precision.
This book bridges the gap between the two communities. It concentrates on the
class of fractional derivatives most important in applications, the Caputo
operators, and provides a selfcontained, thorough and mathematically
rigorous study of their properties and of the corresponding differential
equations. The text is a useful tool for mathematicians and researchers from
the applied sciences alike. It can also be used as a basis for teaching
graduate courses on fractional differential equations. Content Level » Graduate Keywords » 34A08; 34A12; 3402; 3401; 26A33; 33E12

The new book by Francesco Mainardi
is now available for purchasing. The book: "Fractional Calculus And Waves In Linear Viscoelasticity, An Introduction to Mathematical Models", provides a comprehensive overview of the author's work on the fields of fractional calculus and waves in linear viscoelastic media, which includes his pioneering contributions on the applications of special functions of the MittagLeffler and Wright types.It is intended to serve as a general introduction to the abovementioned areas of mathematical modelling. The explanations in the book are detailed enough to capture the interest of the curious reader, and complete enough to provide the necessary background material needed to delve further into the subject and explore the research literature given in the huge general bibliography. This book is likely to be of interest to applied scientists and engineers. For more information, pleas visit:World Scientific Books page
