We introduce and study a variational model for signal and image analysis based on Riemann–Liouville fractional derivatives. Both the one-dimensional and two-dimensional cases are studied. The model exploits a quadratic fitting data term together with both right and left Riemann–Liouville fractional derivatives as regularizing terms, with the aim of achieving an orientation-independent analysis.
