In the previous chapter we addressed the problem of fractional derivative definition and proposed the use the Grünwald-Letnikov and in particular the forward and backward derivatives. These choices were motivated by five main reasons they: do not need superfluous derivative computations, do not insert unwanted initial conditions, are more flexible, allow sequential computations, are more general in the sense of allowing to be applied to a large class of functions.
