The fractional heat equation refers to the parabolic equation \[ u_t + (-\Delta)^s u = 0,\] where $(-\Delta)^s$ stands for the fractional Laplacian.

In principle one could study the equation for any value of $s$. The values in the range $s \in (0,1]$ are particularly interesting because in that range the equation has a maximum principle.
