Differintegration: The One Branch of Calculus
Berry, Andrew J.
AMATYC Review, v29 n1 p13-19 Fall 2007
How might one define a functional operator D[superscript I]f(x), say for f(x) = 1 + x[superscript 2] + sin x, such that D[superscript +1](1 + x[superscript 2] + sin x) = 2x + cos x and D[superscript -1](1 + x[superscript 2] + sin x) = x + x[superscript 3]/3 - cos x? Our task in this article is to describe such an operator using a single formula involving the limit of a sum which depends only on a single parameter specifying the order of the operation of differintegration.
