Progress in Fractional-Order Circuits and Systems Design

Despite the fact that fractional calculus has a history of over 300-years, the design and synthesis of fractional-order (non-integer-order) circuits and systems has only recently became a subject of great interest. While the deeply rooted mathematical concepts of fractional calculus migrate into various scientific disciplines due to their effectiveness in modeling of various processes particularly in physics, biochemistry, medicine, material science and control engineering, recently the number of applications of fractional-order circuits and systems in these interdisciplinary areas has significantly increased. This special session is a continuation of a sincere effort by its organizers as well as other researchers to expedite the development and integration of fractional-order circuits into mainstream electronic circuit design and to accelerate the progress in this research area. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Advances in fractional-order controller design and implementation
• Bio-impedance and energy storage device measurement and modeling
• CAD tools and MATLAB algorithms for simulations of fractional-order circuits
• Circuit theory of fractional-order systems
• Fabrication and behavioral modeling of fractional-order devices
• New analog and digital approximation techniques for fractional-order circuit synthesis
