FDE2 - Fractional differential equations Fractional calculus is an old branch of mathematics which deals with fractionalorder derivatives, e.g., d1=2=dt1=2. Davidson’s group (Weizmann) has recorded the spatialdiffusion of cold atoms in optical lattices, fitting the results to the solution of a fractionaldiffusion equation@βP(x; t)@tβ = KµrµP(x; t):Within the semi classical theory of Sisyphus cooling we derive this fractional equationand discuss its meaning and its limitations [1,2]. An asymptotically weak friction force,induced by the laser field, is responsible for the large deviations from normal transporttheory (and from Boltzmann-Gibbs equilibrium concepts [3]) at least below a critical valueof the depth of the optical lattice.1.
