Many dynamical processes on real world networks display complex temporal patterns as, forinstance, a fat-tailed distribution of inter-events times, leading to heterogeneouswaiting times between events. In this work, we focus on distributions whose averageinter-event time diverges, and study its impact on the dynamics of random walkers onnetworks. The process can naturally be described, in the long time limit, in terms ofRiemann-Liouville fractional derivatives. We show that all the dynamical modes possess, inthe asymptotic regime, the same power law relaxation, which implies that the dynamics doesnot exhibit time-scale separation between modes, and that no mode can be neglected versusanother one, even for long times. Our results are then confirmed by numericalsimulations.
