The Craft of Fractional Modelling in Science and Engineering
by Jordan Hristov (ed.)
Publisher: MDPI AG 2018
Number of pages: 140
Fractional calculus has performed an important role in the fields of mathematics, physics, electronics, mechanics, and engineering in recent years. The modeling methods involving fractional operators have been continuously generalized and enhanced, especially during the last few decades. Many operations in physics and engineering can be defined accurately by using systems of differential equations containing different types of fractional derivatives.

This book approaches the subject from an oft-neglected historical perspective. A particular aim is to make accessible to students Newton's vision of a single system of law governing the falling of an apple and the orbital motion of the moon.

The text focuses on use of spectral methods to solve boundary value, eigenvalue, and time-dependent problems, but also covers Hermite, Laguerre, rational Chebyshev, sinc, and spherical harmonic functions, cardinal functions, etc.

Interacting particle systems (IPS) are models for complex phenomena involving a large number of interrelated components. Examples exist within all areas of natural and social sciences, such as traffic flow on highways, constituents of a cell, etc.

The book about the art of guessing results and solving problems without doing a proof or an exact calculation. Techniques include extreme-cases reasoning, dimensional analysis, successive approximation, discretization, generalization, etc.
