This paper treats the description of non-differentiable dynamics occurring in complex systems governed by local fractional partial differential equations. The exact solutions of diffusion and relaxation equations with Mittag-Leffler and exponential decay defined on Cantor sets are calculated. Comparative results with other versions of the local fractional derivatives are discussed.
