(This article belongs to the Special Issue Fractional Integrals and Derivatives: “True” versus “False”)
The purpose of this brief article is to initiate discussions in this special issue by proposing desiderata for calling an operator a fractional derivative or a fractional integral. Our desiderata are neither axioms nor do they define fractional derivatives or integrals uniquely. Instead they intend to stimulate the field by providing guidelines based on a small number of time honoured and well established criteria. View Full-Text
