A homotopy perturbation technique for solving partial differential equations of fractional order in finite domains. (English) Zbl 1245.65141
Summary: A homotopy perturbation technique is proposed to solve a class of initial-boundary value problems of partial differential equations of arbitrary (fractional) orders over finite domains. The basic idea of this technique is to utilize both the initial and boundary conditions in the recursive relation of the solution scheme so that we can obtain a good approximate solution. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the validity of the proposed technique.
