Abstract

Laguerre differential equation is a well known equation that appears in the quantum mechanical description of the hydrogen atom. In this paper, we aim to develop a new form of Laguerre Fractional Differential Equation (LFDE) of order $2\alpha$ and we investigate the solutions and their properties. For a positive real number $\alpha$, we prove that the equation has solutions of the form $L_{n,\alpha}(x)=\sum_{k=0}^na_kx^k$, where the coefficients of the polynomials are computed explicitly. For integer case $\alpha=1$ we show that these polynomials are identical to classical Laguerre polynomials. Finally, we solve some fractional differential equations by defining a suitable integral transform.
