Published Online: 2019-12-31 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/fca-2019-0078


A new approach to modeling the geometric structure of real materials based on a new type of functions – porous functions – is introduced. The general concept, basic operations, operations of calculus, visualization and interpretations, and potential applications of porous functions are outlined.

MSC 2010: Primary 26A33; Secondary 76S99; 65C99

Key Words and Phrases: porous function; porous interval; granular interval; fractional calculus

Dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Wen Chen, a man of open mind and creativity
