Abstract:
Fractional-order systems have lately been attracting significant attention and gaining more acceptance as generalization to classical integer-order systems. Mathematical basics of fractional-order calculus were laid nearly 300 years ago and since that it has gained deeply rooted mathematical concepts. Today, it is known that many real dynamic systems cannot be described by a system of simple differential equation or of integer-order system. In practice, we can encounter such systems in electronics, signal processing, thermodynamics, biology, medicine, control theory, etc. The Action will favour scientific advancement in above-mentioned areas by coordinating activities of academic research groups towards an efficient deployment of fractal theory to industry applications. The cooperation of researchers from different institutions will guarantee wide visibility of Action results.
