This invaluable monograph is devoted to a rapidly developing area on the research of qualitative theory of fractional ordinary and partial differential equations. It provides the readers the necessary background material required to go further into the subject and explore the rich research literature. The tools used include many classical and modern nonlinear analysis methods such as fixed point theory, measure of noncompactness method, topological degree method, the technique of Picard operators, critical point theory and semigroup theory. Based on the research work carried out by the authors and other experts during the past seven years, the contents are very recent and comprehensive.

In this edition, two new topics have been added, that is, fractional impulsive differential equations, and fractional partial differential equations including fractional Navier–Stokes equations and fractional diffusion equations.

Key Features:

  • There are very few books in the literature presenting systematically the theory of fractional differential equations so far. This book provides a broad scenario of the qualitative theory of fractional differential equations and complements the existing literature in fractional calculus
  • The authors give some current approaches such as critical point theory to study basic theory of fractional differential equations. In this new edition, the authors have added numerous new results on fractional partial differential equations
  • The bibliography has also been updated and expanded
