Fractional oscillator process can be obtained as the solution to the fractional Langevin equation. There exist two types of fractional oscillator processes, based on the choice of fractional integro-differential operators (namely Weyl and Riemann-Liouville). An operator identity for the fractional differential operators associated with the fractional oscillators is derived; it allows the solution of fractional Langevin equations to be obtained by simple inversion. The relationship between these two fractional oscillator processes is studied. The operator identity also plays an important role in the derivation of the path integral representation of the fractional oscillator processes. Relevant quantities such as two-point and n-point functions can be calculated from the generating functions. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
