Good beginner math book on fractional dynamics

  1. Feb 1, 2013 #1
    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.

    Hi !

    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/Fractional_calculus#Fractional_derivative_of_a_basic_power_function
    An even rudimentary paper : "La derivation fractionnaire" (including English translation)

    oh, thanks for the reply. I actually have the book by Oldham and Spanier but I will try out that link for the paper you provided.
