### A Brief Story about the Operators of the Generalized Fractional Calculus

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 26A33, 33C60, 44A20In this survey we present a brief history and the basic ideas of the generalized fractional calculus (GFC). The notion “generalized operator of fractional integration” appeared in the papers of the jubilarian Prof. S.L. Kalla in the years 1969-1979 when he suggested the general form of these operators and studied examples of them whose kernels were special functions as the Gauss and generalized hypergeometric functions, including arbitrary...
