Fractal property has been verified in the research of many kinds of complex media, such as soil, aquifer and concrete. Particle transport in fractal media often does not obey the classical Fickian law, and exhibits anomalous diffusion feature. Several promising physical models have been proposed to describe this kind of anomalous transport in the recent decades. This study will introduce a new Matlab toolbox to investigate three approaches including fractal theory, continuous time random walk (CTRW) model and fractional derivative diffusion equation model on characterizing anomalous transport.
