Sum and Difference Compositions in Discrete Fractional Calculus


Michael Holm

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln,USA


We introduce fractional sum and difference operators, study their behavior and develop a complete theory governing their compositions. This theory is then applied to solve a general, fractional initial value problem.

Keywords: Discrete Fractional Calculus, Fractional Sum, Fractional Difference, Composition Rule, Fractional Initial Value Problem.

Mathematics Subject Classification: 34


Introducimos operadores de suma y diferencia fraccionaria, estudiamos su comportamiento y desarrollamos una teoria completa que rige sus composiciones. Aplicamos esta teoría para resolver un problema fraccionado de valor inicial
