By C. Pozrikidis

The fractional Laplacian, also known as the Riesz fractional spinoff, describes an strange diffusion approach linked to random tours. The Fractional Laplacian explores purposes of the fractional Laplacian in technological know-how, engineering, and different parts the place long-range interactions and conceptual or actual particle jumps leading to an abnormal diffusive or conductive flux are encountered.




  • Presents the fabric at a degree compatible for a large viewers of scientists and engineers with rudimentary heritage in usual differential equations and crucial calculus

  • Clarifies the idea that of the fractional Laplacian for features in a single, , 3, or an arbitrary variety of dimensions outlined over the full area, enjoyable periodicity stipulations, or constrained to a finite domain

  • Covers actual and mathematical suggestions in addition to unique mathematical derivations

  • Develops a numerical framework for fixing differential equations regarding the fractional Laplacian and provides particular algorithms followed via numerical leads to one, , and 3 dimensions

  • Discusses viscous movement and actual examples from medical and engineering disciplines


Written through a prolific writer popular for his contributions in fluid mechanics, biomechanics, utilized arithmetic, clinical computing, and computing device technology, the e-book emphasizes primary principles and sensible numerical computation. It comprises unique fabric and novel numerical methods.
