The actual state of interplay between Fractional Calculus, Signal Processing, and Applied Sciences is discussed in this paper. A framework for compatible integer and fractional derivatives/integrals in signals and systems context is described. It is shown how suitable fractional formulations are really extensions of the integer order definitions currently used in Signal Processing. The particular case of fractional linear systems is considered and the problem of initial conditions is tackled. View Full-Text
