Afterwards, Nottale defines a set of complex quantities which are generalization of well known classical quantities (Lagrange action, velocity, momentum, etc), in order to be coherent with the introduction of the complex-time derivative operator.
Let us remark that the central problem is to define a generalization of the derivative operator (known from the real analysis) for functions defined on time scales.

If the interpolation will be carried out on three points (square parabola), that the second derivative operators in all nine points will be identical.
Initially, we started with a 8-bit grayscale image of size 256 X 256 and the input image is processed using the different gradient first and second derivative operators like Sobel, Robert, Prewitt and Laplacian to find edge map [5, 7, 23, 24].
The technique, we will exploit, is based on the use of negative derivative operators (1), on their algebraic manipulation and on the properties of multi-index Bessel functions (2).
