Abstract: The differential equation

\begin{displaymath}dx(t) \, = \, a(x(t),t) \,dZ(t) \:+\: b(x(t),t) \,dt \end{displaymath}

for fractal-type functions \begin{math}Z(t) \end{math} is determined via fractional calculus. Under appropriate conditions we prove existence and uniqueness of a local solution by means of its representation \begin{math}x(t)\, =\, h(y(t)+Z(t),t) \end{math} for certain \begin{math}C^1 \end{math}-functions \begin{math}h \end{math} and \begin{math}y \end{math}. The method is also applied to Itô stochastic differential equations and leads to a general pathwise representation. Finally we discuss fractal sample path properties of the solutions.
