**Special Functions: Fractional Calculus and the Pathway for Entropy**

by Hans J. Haubold (ed.)

**Publisher**: MDPI AG 2018**ISBN-13**: 9783038426653**Number of pages**: 306

**Description**:

Historically, the notion of entropy emerged in conceptually very distinct contexts. This book deals with the connection between entropy, probability, and fractional dynamics as they appeared, for example, in solar neutrino astrophysics since the 1970's.
