Examples with applications of time-fractional semi-derivatives and singular kernel models (Caputo time fractional operator) in cases of field independent and field-dependent magnetic diffusivities have been developed: Dirichlet problems and time-dependent boundary condition (power-law ramp). Approximate solutions in all theses case have been developed by applications of the integral-balance method and assumed parabolic profile with unspecified exponents. Tow version of the integral method have been successfully implemented: SDIM (single integration applicable to time-fractional semi-derivative model) and DIM (double-integration model to fractionalized singular memory models). The fading memory approach in the sense of the causality concept and memory kernel effect on the model constructions have been discussed.</p> Jordan Hristov Copyright (c) 2021 Jordan Hristov Tue, 17 Aug 2021 00:00:00 +0300
