Learn Something New About Fractional Calculus at Math Colloquium Talk, March 12

All are welcome to attend a free talk introducing the subject of fractional calculus. The event is part of the Mathematics Colloquium Series, hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences.

“Fractional Calculus and Smallest Eigenvalues”
Mathematics Colloquium Series | Jeffrey T. Neugebauer, Ph.D. (Eastern Kentucky University)

Tuesday, Mar. 12|  Noon–1:00 p.m.
Carl DeSantis Building | Room 2067

About the Talk

This talk will introduce the subject of fractional calculus, which involves taking integrals and derivatives of arbitrary order. Neugebauer will show how the definitions of fractional derivatives and fractional integrals are natural extensions of the definitions of the derivative and the integral. In addition to showing some examples, Neugebauer will explore ongoing research on the comparison of smallest eigenvalues of a fractional-boundary-value problem with conjugate boundary conditions.

About the Series

Hosted by the college’s Division of Math, Science, and Technology, the Mathematics Colloquium Series aims to increase awareness of mathematics’ importance and applications in daily life. The series also gives mathematics faculty members and students the opportunity to discuss independent research and share their passion for the subject. These talks are free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Vehbi Paksoy, Ph.D., or Iuliana Stanculescu, Ph.D., associate professors at the college.
