Abstract

The wave equation has very important role in many areas of physics. It has a fundamental meaning in classical as well as quantum field theory. With this view, one is strongly motivated to discuss solutions of the wave equation in all possible situations. The wave equation in fractional space can effectively describe the wave propagation phenomenon in fractal media. In this chapter, exact solutions of different forms of wave equation in D -dimensional fractional space are provided, which describe the phenomenon of electromagnetic wave propagation in fractional space.
