An algorithm for the numerical solution of differential equations of fractional order. (English) Zbl 0890.65071
The author considers the fractional differential equation $(D^q[x-x_0])(t)=\beta x(t)+f(t), \qquad 0\leq t \leq 1, \quad x(0)=x_0,$ where $$0<q<1$$, $$f$$ is a given function on the interval $$[0,1]$$, $$\beta \leq 0$$. Here $$D^q x$$ denotes the Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative of order $$q$$. An implicit algorithm for the approximate solution of an important class of these equations is proposed. Error estimates and numerical examples are given.
