Introduction:
Progress in the last two decades have demonstrated that many phenomena in various fields of science, mathematics, engineering, bioengineering, and economics are more accurately described by using fractional derivatives and/or integral differential equations, and they are emerging as a new powerful tool for modeling many difficult type of complex systems. However, due to their non-local and singular nature, it is a tremendous challenge to design accurate and efficient numerical methods for solving fractional and integral differential equations. The main objective of this special session is to bring together experts for fractional and integral differential equations to present their latest advances and discuss future directions.
