For compressible flows, in particular, there are additional degrees of fractional differential equations and treatment of a fractional derivative operator . The latter can have very different characteristic amplitudes and scales in comparison with the vorticity field. Fractional-order systems are useful in studying the anomalous behavior of dynamical systems in physics, and electrochemistry. A particular difficulty of modeling such flows at high Reynolds (Re) numbers is the diversity of space and time scales that emerge as the flow develops. A particular difficulty of modeling such flows at high Reynolds (Re) numbers is the diversity of space and time scales that emerge as the flow develops fractional order models of neurons, the electric conductance of biological systems, fitting experimental data, and medical analysis of special functions (see  ). In case of high re-number flows, the disparity of the scales happens. We launch a new Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative operator associated with hypergeometric type function . Further, we investigate some properties of the new fractional derivative operator. For engineering applications, examples of unsteady vertical flows include the interaction of wakes and shocks with the boundary layer in a transonic turbine and vorticity dissipation shed due to the temporal variations in blade circulation that can have a profound loss influence and affect the overall performance of a turbomachine (e.g., Fritsch and Giles, 1992; Michelassi et al., 2003). Another example is dynamics and acoustics of high-speed jet flows that are affected by the jet inflow conditions such as the state of the boundary layer at the nozzle exit (e.g., Bogey and Bailly, 2010). The computational aspects involved in the modelling of such complex flows, typically, include the issues of high-resolution numerical schemes, boundary conditions, non-uniform grids and the choice of sub grid scale parameterization. Fractional calculus is allowing integrals and derivatives of any positive order (the term fractional is kept only for historical reasons)   . It can be considered a branch of mathematical physics that deals with integral-differential equations, where integrals are of convolution type and exhibit mainly singular kernels of power law or logarithm type. The purpose of this Special Issue is to establish a collection of articles that reflect the latest mathematical and conceptual developments in the field of fractional calculus and explore the scope for applications in applied sciences  .
2. Differential Equations of Fractional Order
The fractional ordinary differential equations have the following general form
where and are given function and are the operators of fractional differentiation with real or complex , , . for the nonlinear differential
With real or complex ( ), and the linear differential equations
The fractional differentiation operators (1) and (3) can have different forms see , but the equations containing the Riemann Liouville fractional derivative are studied. For complex , such a fractional derivative is defined by
where is the fractional integral of order .
is the Gamma function  . It should be noted that the Riemann Liouville approach (5) to the definition of fractional integration is a generalization of the integration operator applied n times:
(If we use the formula ) and replaced n by ( ), then (6) yields (5) and the fractional differentiation operator is inverse to the fractional integration one from the left:
For suitable function from (5). For real , Equation (4) takes the form
where means the integral part of in particular if ,
And if , then , is the usual derivative of order n .
3. Fractional Calculus, Fractional Differential Equations and Applications
In mathematics, many complex concepts developed from simple concepts. For example, we can refer to the extension of natural number to the real one in some mathematical formulae. Let’s give an example to clarify: the factorial of a non-negative integer n   , denoted by , is the product of all positive integers less than or equal to n. On the other hand, there is a concept named Gama function and defined as follows
One property of the function for is
Hence, this function is equal to factorial for the integer numbers. As a result, the gamma function could be considered as an extension of factorial function to real numbers. For instance, according to the above formalism, a factorial of 1/2 can be obtained as follows:
According to Wikipedia, the gamma function can be seen as the solution to find a smooth curve that connects the points given by at the positive integer values for x.
Lemma 3.1. Let . The following relations hold:
1) if , then ,
2) if , then
then is a solution of the boundary value problem
if and only if y satisfies:
where the Green’s function associated with (1) is defined by
Proof By Lemma 2.1 (2), we deduce from equation (13) that
and the boundary conditions give:
Thus, we obtain that:
Inversely, if satisfies (2), then we have:
(which shows that ) we have:
that is, y is a proof of (1) . ∎
Definition 3.2 If , then the fractional derivative exists almost everywhere on . If is not an integer, then it is expressed as follows:
where and stands for the largest integer not greater than α  .
Let’s use this approach to extend the concept of derivative to non-integer order; consider nth derivation of power function .
where k and n are real integer number respectively, and . To generalize the above equation, it could be possible to extend the integer number n to a real value named :
Then for fractional derivative of an arbitrary function, expand the function in a power series of x first, and then by using equation (18) derivate the expansion. For example, for derivative to order, we rewrite function as follows:
That is incomplete gamma function      .
This is an arbitrary way to define fractional derivative and not the only way, for example, it is possible to use an exponential function instead of a power function, we can define:
The fractional derivative of the exponential function obtained by Liouville in 1832 , and the fractional derivative of power function got by Riemann in 1847 .
4. Riemann-Liouville Fractional Derivative
In this section, we shall exploit the concept of Riemann-Liouville type fractional derivative operator  . For this purpose, we first consider the Riemann Liouville fractional derivative of of order v as follows:
where the integration path is a line from 0 to z in the complex t-plane   .
The Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative of of order v is defined as:
When , let be the smallest integer greater than and so , then a new Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative of of order v can be defined as follows:
Remark On setting in (18) and (19) we are left with the classical Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative. In the case in Equations (24) and (25) reduces to the well-known fractional derivative operator given in   .
5. Fractional Derivative of Some Functions
Let for some . Suppose that a function is analytic at the origin with its Maclaurin expansion given by for some . Then we have
Proof Now applying (24) in the definition (25) to the function , and changing the order of integration and summation, we obtain
Putting in (27), we obtain
The applying definition of extended beta function, and after some simplification, we get the desired result as follows:
Example 5.2 Let for some . Then we have
Solution We have applied the definition of the fractional derivative, we obtain
Putting in (24), we obtain
We apply the definition of the extended beta function, we obtain the solution  .
Example 5.3 Let for some . Then we have
Solution Applying the definition of the new fractional derivative operator, we obtain
Putting in (27), we obtain
We apply the definition of the extended hypergeometric function, we get the solution  .
In this paper, we have special issue to establish a collection of functions in the field of fractional calculus and explore the scope for applications in applied sciences. We have also defined fractional calculus, fractional differential, and an interesting Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative operator. In addition to that, we have important properties of the new fractional derivative operator. And we apply the definition of the new fractional derivative operator. We define the extended beta function that we obtained.
As an application of our new operator, we have established some interesting generating functions for the extended hypergeometric function , using the new operator.
