Fractional Quantum Mechanics
Fractional quantum mechanics is a recently emerged and rapidly developing field of quantum physics.This is the first monograph on fundamentals and physical applications of fractional quantum mechanics, written by its founder.The fractional Schrodinger equation and the fractional path integral are new fundamental physical concepts introduced and elaborated in the book. The fractional Schrodinger equation is a manifestation of fractional quantum mechanics. The fractional path integral is a new mathematical tool based on integration over Levy flights. The fractional path integral method enhances the well-known Feynman path integral framework.Related topics covered in the text include time fractional quantum mechanics, fractional statistical mechanics, fractional classical mechanics and the a-stable Levy random process.The book is well-suited for theorists, pure and applied mathematicians, solid-state physicists, chemists, and others working with the Schrodinger equation, the path integral technique and applications of fractional calculus in various research areas. It is useful to skilled researchers as well as to graduate students looking for new ideas and advanced approaches.
