An approximation to solution of space and time fractional telegraph equations by He’s variational iteration method. (English) Zbl 1191.65137

Summary: He’s variational iteration method (VIM) is used for solving space and time fractional telegraph equations. Numerical examples are presented in this paper. The obtained results show that VIM is effective and convenient.
