The derivative is at the heart of mathematics and specifically calculus, so why not extend this idea? What does it mean to take a half derivative? A πth derivative? These are the questions that sparked the area of fractional calculus. In this talk, we will investigate these intriguing questions and draw comparisons between traditional calculus and fractional calculus. Time permitting, we will explore some of the various applications for which fractional calculus is well-suited.
