Abstract
Description
We propose entropy functions based on fractional calculus. We show that this new entropy has the same properties than the Shannon entropy except additivity, therefore making this entropy non-extensive. We show that this entropy function satisfies the Lesche and thermodynamic stability criteria.
Comment: 9 pages, two figures, references added, proof on Lesche's stability has been corrected
