I was wondering if anyone knows any textbooks that are a good beginners guide for the dynamics (mechanics) using the fractional calculus. I have The Fractional Calculus by Oldham and Spanier but was hoping to find something more rudimentary. Thanks.

On my opinion, the book of K.B.Oldham and J.Spannier is one the best to start in the field of fractionnal calculus. There is a good introduction in Wiki : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractio...power_function An even rudimentary paper : "La derivation fractionnaire" (including English translation) http://www.scribd.com/JJacquelin/documents
