Original Article


This paper is devoted to the study of fractional calculus with an integral and differential operators containing the following family of extended Mittag–Leffler function:
$$\begin{aligned} E_{\alpha ,\beta }^{\gamma ;c}(z; p)=\sum \limits _{n=0}^{\infty }\frac{B_p(\gamma +n, c-\gamma )(c)_{n}}{B(\gamma , c-\gamma )\Gamma (\alpha n+\beta )}\frac{z^n}{n!}, (z,\beta , \gamma \in \mathbb {C}), \end{aligned}$$
in its kernel. Also, we further introduce a certain number of consequences of fractional integral and differential operators containing the said function in their kernels.
