One of the aims of this article is to investigate the solvability and unsolvability conditions for fractional cohomological equation ψ αf = g, on T n. We prove that if f is not analytic, then fractional integro-differential equation I 1−α t Dα x u(x, t) + iI1−α x Dα t u(x, t) = f(t) has no solution in C1 (B) with 0 < α ≤ 1. We also obtain solutions for the space-time fractional heat equations on S 1 and T n. At the end of this article, there are examples of fractional partial differential equations and a fractional integral equation together with their solutions.
