Description

Over the last two decades anomalous relaxation and diffusion processes have been studied from both the experimental and theoretical point of view. Anomalous transport processes occur usually in so-called complex, i.e. in disordered systems. Here, we review some recent developments in modeling non-standard relaxation and diffusion equations based on Riemann-Liouville fractional calculus techniques. Closed analytical expressions of the solutions of such fractional differential equations are given in terms of Fox's H-functions. The analytical calculations carried out are fully supported by our Mathematica package FractionalCalculus.
