This book contains mathematical preliminaries in which basicdefinitions of fractional derivatives and spaces are presented. Thecentral part of the book contains various applications in classicalmechanics including fields such as: viscoelasticity, heatconduction, wave propagation and variational Hamilton–typeprinciples. Mathematical rigor will be observed in theapplications. The authors provide some problems formulated in theclassical setting and some in the distributional setting. Thesolutions to these problems are presented in analytical form andthese solutions are then analyzed numerically. Theorems on theexistence of solutions will be presented for all examplesdiscussed. In using various constitutive equations the restrictionsfollowing from the second law of thermodynamics will beimplemented. Finally, the physical implications of obtainedsolutions will be discussed in detail.
