Fractal Vector Analysis: A Local Fractional Calculus Point of View provides an overview of fractal vector calculus, which includes local fractional line integrals, local fractional surface integrals, and local fractional volume integrals. The book presents an overview of key breakthroughs in classical calculus in vector spaces. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of some applications of local fractional calculus from the fractals point of view. Coverage will include double and triple local fractional integrals, as well as elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic local fractional PDEs.
The potential audience includes, but is not limited to, researchers in the fields of mathematics, physics, and engineering. It could also be used as a textbook for an introductory course on fractal vector calculus and applications, for senior undergraduate and graduate students in the above-mentioned areas.
