Sverre Holm: Non-integer derivatives in acoustics and other areas of physics

Abstract: This talk is about the non-integer (fractional) derivative, its mathematical formulation by Abel in 1823, and present-day applications in modeling power-law behavior. These applications are in acoustics of complex media like tissue and sediments as well as in rheology, turbulence, and dielectrics. It will build on my book “Waves with Power-Law Attenuation”, Springer, 2019.

The talk will be streamed online. Please contact "timokoch at" for the Zoom link. This talk is part of the Mechanics Lunch Seminar series. Bring-your-own-lunch and lots of questions.
