About the International Workshop on Fractional Derivatives

The idea of fractional calculus (FC) is as old as traditional calculus. It was formulated in 1695, shortly after the development of classical calculus, and the original question that led to the name fractional calculus was: Can the meaning of a derivative of integer order be extended to have a meaning when it is a fraction?

Since then, several mathematicians contributed to the development of FC, including Riemann, Liouville, Abel, Grunwald, Letnikov, Weyle and Riesz.

Until recently, research on FC was confined to the field of mathematics. However, in the last two decades, many applications of FC in various fields of engineering, science, mathematics, bioengineering and economics have been found. As a result, FC has become an important topic for researchers in various fields.

This workshop is the part of the SERB CRG/2018/002654 project sanctioned to the organizer. The principal goal of this workshop is to present a systematic introduction to the fractional derivatives and fractional PDEs, and its need to the current research areas including real life applications.

Further, some problems of interest from science and engineering will be addressed. The participants will be introduced to computational and analytical methods for the problems in fractional variational calculus such as fractional variational problems, problems in fractional control and solving fractional differential equations.

The applications of the fractional derivatives in the area of image/signal processing will also be addressed.

To conclude, some problems will be outlined, and challenges involved in solving them will be discussed, motivating young faculty members/ Post-doctorals/Ph.D. students to engage in research problems in this rapidly developing area of research. Few lab sessions will also be conducted.

This workshop will provide a forum to faculty members and young researchers to interact with eminent speakers and to enhance their cognizance in the field of fractional derivatives: Theory & Computations with applications in science and engineering.

Further, this will allow communication of intra and inter disciplinary ideas and will result in acceleration of new collaborations of applied mathematicians, numerical analysts, and the engineers.

ABOUT IIT (BHU) VARANASI

The Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University), Varanasi owes its existence to the farsighted vision and relentless efforts of the founder Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya ji who created the first comprehensive residential university of India.

Three engineering and technological institutions were established viz the Benaras Engineer ing College(BENCO) in 1919, the College of Mining and Metallurgy (MINMET) in 1923, and the College of Technology (TECHNO) in 1932 as the constituent units of Banaras Hindu University.

The first ever Bachelor degree course in Electrical, Mechanical, Metallurgy, Mining, Ceramics and Pharmaceutics in India were pioneered at BHU while Pharmaceutics also being the first in Asia.

After country’s independence in 1947, post graduate and doctoral research programmes were also introduced here.

These colleges produced outstanding engineers who led various indigenous industries, academic institutions and R&D laboratories both within and outside the country. The three engineering colleges were merged to form the Institute of Technology (BHU) in 1968.

The erstwhile IT(BHU) has been converted into IIT(BHU) Varanasi wef 29th June, 2012. Since then IIT (BHU) is witnessing realization of several significant academics, research and developmental programmes and new initiatives in all spheres of the Institute.

ABOUT THE CITY

The holy city of Varanasi is known as the city of temples and learning. It is a place of great historical and cultural importance. This religious capital of India is situated on the bank of the holy river Ganges and is famous for temples of Lord Shiva, Buddha (at Sarnath) and Sankat Mochan etc.

Varanasi is the premiere most place of oriental learning also. Simultaneously it is keeping pace with modern advanced knowledge. The city is reputed for silk fabrics, perfumes, artistic brass and copper wares and a variety of handicrafts.

This vibrant city with multiple dimensions of knowledge and liberation has a magnetic attraction for people all over the world.
