    Aims and Scope

    Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis (FCAA, abbreviated in the World databases as Fract. Calc. Appl. Anal. or FRACT CALC APPL ANAL) is a specialized international journal for theory and applications of an important branch of Mathematical Analysis (Calculus) where differentiations and integrations can be of arbitrary non-integer order. The high standards of its contents are guaranteed by the prominent members of Editorial Board and the expertise of invited external reviewers, and proven by the recently achieved high values of impact factor (JIF) and impact rang (SJR), launching the journal to top places of the ranking lists of Thomson Reuters and Scopus.

      Primary topics of FCAA:

    • Fractional Calculus (FC)
    • Special Functions and Integral Transforms, related to FC
    • Fractional Order Differential and Integral Equations and Systems
    • Mathematical Models of Phenomena, described by the above topics
      Secondary topics from Applied Mathematical Analysis, iff related to FC:

    • Algebraic Analysis, Operational and Convolutional Calculi
    • Generalized Functions, Harmonic Analysis
    • Numerical and Approximation Methods, Computational Procedures and Algorithms, related to the Primary FCAA topics
    • Fractional Stochastic Processes
    • Fractal and Integral Geometry
      Applications of these techniques to:

    • Differential and Integral Equations, Problems of Mathematical Physics
    • Control Theory, Mechanics, Probability and Statistics, Finances, Engineering, etc.
      Other contributions:

    • If revealing connections between Fractional Calculus and the above-mentioned topics to model problems of the real physical and social world

    Article formats

    The journal was founded in 1998 and published during 1998 – 2010 by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics – Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, with the valuable support of its Founding Editors, among them – the pioneers of the contemporary fractional calculus (in the lists of Honorary Founding Editors and Honorary Editors).

    In the period 2011 – 2014 (Vol. 14 to Vol. 17) the FCAA journal was co-published by Versita (now: De Gryuter Open), Warsaw and Springer-Verlag, Wien, as the first Bulgarian scientific journal in their joint publishing program for East Europe. A wide popularity was achieved by its both print version and electronic version, then at SpringerLink, http://link.springer.com/journal/13540 .

    Since Vol. 18 (2015), the publisher and distributor of FCAA is Walter de GruyterGmbH, Berlin / Boston, and the main website is http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/fca.

    We acknowledge the continued support and cooperation of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics - Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
