About this book

"Fractional Dynamics: Applications of Fractional Calculus to Dynamics of Particles, Fields and Media" presents applications of fractional calculus, integral and differential equations of non-integer orders in describing systems with long-time memory, non-local spatial and fractal properties. Mathematical models of fractal media and distributions, generalized dynamical systems and discrete maps, non-local statistical mechanics and kinetics, dynamics of open quantum systems, the hydrodynamics and electrodynamics of complex media with non-local properties and memory are considered. This book is intended to meet the needs of scientists and graduate students in physics, mechanics and applied mathematics who are interested in electrodynamics, statistical and condensed matter physics, quantum dynamics, complex media theories and kinetics, discrete maps and lattice models, and nonlinear dynamics and chaos. Dr. Vasily E. Tarasov is a Senior Research Associate at Nuclear Physics Institute of Moscow State University and an Associate Professor at Applied Mathematics and Physics Department of Moscow Aviation Institute.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A scientific and reference guide for advanced researchers actively working in the field of chaos theory, wave dynamics, nonlinear dynamics and electromagnetic phenomena in media. It will be helpful for graduate students … who are looking for theoretical models to study complex dynamical systems under the influence of long-memory temporal and long-range spatial interactions. For those who are not engaged in the field but seeking new theoretical approaches and frameworks, the book will bring a variety of mathematical methods and tools involving fractional calculus.” (Nick Laskin, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 f)
