Numerical solutions of differential equations with fractional L-derivative

Original Article


Fractional differential equations are solved with L-fractional derivatives, using numerical procedures. Two characteristic fractional differential equations are numerically solved. The first equation describes the motion of a thin rigid plate immersed in a Newtonian fluid connected by a massless spring to a fixed point, and the other one the diffusion of gas in a fluid.
