Analytical solution of a time-fractional Navier-Stokes equation by Adomian decomposition method. (English) Zbl 1096.65131

Summary: The aim of the present analysis is to apply the Adomian decomposition method for the solution of a time-fractional Navier-Stokes equation in a tube. By using an initial value, the explicit solution of the equation is presented in closed form and then its numerical solution is represented graphically. The present method performs extremely well in terms of efficiency and simplicity.
