## A fractional variational iteration method for solving fractional nonlinear differential equations.(English)Zbl 1219.65085

Summary: Recently, fractional differential equations have been investigated by employing the famous variational iteration method. However, all the previous works avoid the fractional order term and only handle it as a restricted variation. A fractional variational iteration method was first proposed by the author and E.W.M. Lee [Phys. Lett. A 374, 2506–2509 (2010)] and gave a generalized Lagrange multiplier. In this paper, two fractional differential equations are approximately solved with the fractional variational iteration method.
