Abstract

Fractional order (FO) differentiation is a generalization of classical integer differentiation to real or complex orders. The origin of this concept dates back to the early days of classical differential calculus, although its inherent complexity postponed its use and application to the engineering world. In the last decades, the developments in computing technologies combined with the unique advantages of FO differ-integrals in modeling complex phenomena, have led to ongoing research interest towards using fractional calculus (FC) as an optimal tool to describe the dynamics of complex systems. Apart from this, FC is currently gaining more and more popularity in the engineering community. Nowadays, the adoption of FC in control engineering has been gaining more and more momentum, both in modeling, identification, and controller design.
