Colloquium: Fractional calculus view of complexity: A tutorial
Bruce J. West
Fractional calculus used to belong to pure mathematics, but not any longer. With the increasing complexity found in systems with a large number of degrees of freedom, fractional calculus found its way into physical phenomena. This Colloquium reviews fractional calculus and its applications to fascinating problems in statistical physics, networks, and dissipative systems among others.
