58) 0 for locally integrable functions f : R + → C. 59) by the convolution theorem for Laplace transforms. The Laplace transform of I0α− f leads to a more complicated operator. 60) a holds. The formula is known as fractional integration by parts [99]. 61) −∞ holds for Weyl fractional integrals. These formulae provide a second method of generalizing fractional integration to distributions. 62) for a distribution f and a test function ϕ. It shows that right- and left-sided fractional integrals are adjoint operators.

Part I Fractional Calculus and Stochastic Theory 15 Introduction to Part I The opening Part I of this book is devoted to Fractional calculus and stochastic theory. It presents in detail the theoretical and mathematical foundations of the formalism describing anomalous transport, such as fractional differentials and fractional differential equations, and gives a modern outline of random walk approaches to anomalous transport.

They appear as the natural fluid limit (at very long times and long distances) of CTRWs. Thus, if CTRWs or FDEs are to provide a reasonable description of turbulent transport, they should be derivable, at least in some limit, from more standard continuous equations. The V-Langevin equation, which is simply the continuity equation for the density of particles which are advected by a flow (V) with prescribed statistical and correlation properties, provides one such starting point for the derivation.
