The operational calculus is an algorithmic approach for the solution of initial-value problems for differential, integral, and integro-differential equations. In this paper, an operational calculus of the Mikusiński type for a generalized Riemann-Liouville fractional differential operator with types introduced by one of the authors is developed. The traditional Riemann-Liouville and Liouville-Caputo fractional derivatives correspond to particu lar types of the general one-parameter family of fractional derivatives with the same order. The operational calculus constructed in this paper is used to solve the corresponding initial value problem for the general n-term linear equation with these generalized fractional derivatives of arbitrary orders and types with constant coefficients. Special cases of the obtained solutions are presented.
