Although fractional calculus is a natural generalization of calculus, and although its mathematical history is equally long, it has, until recently, played a negligible role in physics. One reason could be that, until recently, the basic facts were not readily accessible even in the mathematical literature. This book intends to increase the accessibility of fractional calculus by combining an introduction to the mathematics with a review of selected recent applications in physics.
