Computable extensions of generalized fractional kinetic equations in astrophysics

Vinod Behari Lal Chaurasia, Shared Chander Pandey


Fractional calculus and special functions have contributed a lot to mathematical physics and its various branches. The great use of mathematical physics in distinguished astrophysical problems has attracted astronomers and physicists to pay more attention to available mathematical tools that can be widely used in solving several problems of astrophysics/physics. In view of the great importance and usefulness of kinetic equations in certain astrophysical problems, the authors derive a generalized fractional kinetic equation involving the Lorenzo-Hartley function, a generalized function for fractional calculus. The fractional kinetic equation discussed here can be used to investigate a wide class of known (and possibly also new) fractional kinetic equations, hitherto scattered in the literature. A compact and easily computable solution is established in terms of the Lorenzo-Hartley function. Special cases, involving the generalized Mittag-Leffler function and the R-function, are considered. The obtained results imply the known results more precisely.
