Abstract: Using fractional calculus we define integrals of the form , where and are vector-valued Hölder continuous functions of order and is a continuously differentiable function such that is -Hölder continuous for some . Under some further smooth conditions on the integral is a continuous functional of , , and the tensor product with respect to the Hölder norms. We derive some estimates for these integrals and we solve differential equations driven by the function . We discuss some applications to stochastic integrals and stochastic differential equations.
