    On Λ-fractional variational calculus

    KA Lazopoulos and AK Lazopoulos*

    Pointing out that Λ-fractional analysis is the unique fractional calculus theory including mathematically acceptable fractional derivatives, variational calculus for Λ-fractional analysis is established. Since Λ-fractional analysis is a non-local procedure, global extremals are only accepted. That means the extremals should satisfy not only the Euler–Lagrange equation but also the additional Weierstrass-Erdmann corner conditions. Hence non-local stability criteria are introduced. The proposed variational procedure is applied to any branch of physics, mechanics, biomechanics, etc. The present analysis is applied to the Λ-fractional refraction of light.
