Fractional calculus and partial differential equation-Session 2

Event Start
Event End


In this course, we provide a brief introduction to fractional calculus with a view to applying it to the study of time fractional partial differential equations. We will introduce the definitions and main properties of  fractional integrals and derivatives, including those of Riemann-Liouville, Caputo and Grunwald-Letnikov. The previous results will serve as the main modeling tools for partial differential equations related to a class of non-Markovian stochastic processes, called subdiffusions. Then we will examine some results regarding time-fractional linear partial differential equations and conclude with a brief introduction to control problems and Mean Field Games for subdiffusion processes.
