Abstract. Recent years have witnessed a great research boom in soft matter physics. By now, most advances, however, are of empirical results or purely mathematical extensions. The major obstacle is lacking of insights into fundamental physical laws underlying fractal mesostructures of soft matter. This study will use fractional mathematics, which consists of fractal, fractional calculus, fractional Brownian motion, and Levy stable distribution, to examine mesoscopic quantum mechanics and time-space structures governing anomalous behaviors of soft matter. Our major new results include fractional Planck quantum energy relationship, fractional phonon, and time-space scaling transform.
