fractional calculus is generalised elementary calculus.It came into knowledge of mathematician in 17th centuary.Leibneitz, Newton, Euler, Riemann, Liouville and many more contributed in fractional calculus. It is applied in solving differential equation of fractional order.Fractional Calculus The study of an extension of derivatives and integrals to noninteger orders. Fractional calculus is based on the definition of the fractional integral where is the gamma function. From this equation, fractional derivatives can also be defined.
