报告题目：Fractional Order Thinking（分数阶思维）
报告摘要：Fractional calculus (FC) is about differentiation and integration of non-integer orders. This tutorial talk is trying to promote the view point that, using fractional calculus based tools, we are able to understand complexities better. We start with basics on power law manifest of complexities and explain how power law is linked to fractional order dynamics in various contexts such as relaxation, autocorrelation, power spectrum, and probability density. We highlight heavy-tailedness and long range dependence in connection to extreme events. Our personal experience tells an unpleasant fact that “extreme events” are happening more and more often. What’s the governing law behind it? How we better understand the fact that extreme events are happening more and more often? Why this is linked to fractional order dynamics? These can be explained (fractionally) in this talk. Finally, the speaker will share an interesting interpretation of Taoism and the fact that, fractional calculus way of thinking was perhaps already embedded in the text of Lao Tzu’s “Tao Te Ching.” We shall end the talk by sharing how your research excellence could be enhanced or even enabled by using fractional order thinking suggested in this talk.
