Exponential laws for fractional differences
Abstract: In Math. Comp., v. 28, 1974, pp. 185-202, Diaz and Osler gave the following (formal) definition for , the th fractional difference of . They derived formulas and applications involving this difference. They asked whether their differences satisfied an exponent law and what the relation was between their differences and others, such as . In this paper an exponent law for their differences is established and a relation found between the two differences mentioned above. Applications of these results are given.
