EPJ Plus Focus Point - Modelling Complex Real-World Problems with Fractal and New Trends of Fractional Differentiation

Differential operators with non-singular kernels have been suggested recently and have raised interest in many fields of science, technology and engineering. They have being recognized to have brought news tools in applied mathematics and other applied sciences, as they are able to capture and observe a more complex physical behavior of nature. One of their unique properties is crossover behavior; in particular, their ability to capture Brownian motion, stochastic processes, anomalous diffusion and power-law dependency processes. This Focus Point on Modelling Complex Real-World Problems with Fractal and New Trends of Fractional Differentiation edited by A. Atangana, Z. Hammouch, G. Mophou and K. M. Owolabi in EPJ Plus aims at capturing current developments and initiatives of these new mathematical tools in modeling real-world problems. It focuses on new numerical and analytical methods for solving the complex real-world problems arising in physics. Several new results were presented and published in this Focus Point. In particular, a revolutionary paper has led to the extension of the field of non-local operators and their applications. The particular attention devoted to these new mathematical tools leaves no doubt on the fact that the future of modeling real-worl problems relies on these operators.

The proceedings of the FUSION14 conference have been published online in EPJ Web of Conference in January 2015. The proceedings were sent to EDP Sciences in mid december 2014. It is remarkable that, despite the end of the year break and the relatively large number of contributions, the proceedings have appeared online so quickly.
The editorial team of the FUSION14 proceedings has very much appreciated the flexibility of EDP Sciences who could accommodate for our submission of the proceedings at a later date than expected as well as their professionalism.
This is not the first edition of FUSION proceedings to appear in EPJ Web of Conferences. It is also likely that the proceedings of future editions of this triennial conference will again be published in this journal.
