Approximate solution to the time-space fractional cubic nonlinear Schrödinger equation. (English) Zbl 1254.65115

Summary: By introducing the fractional derivatives in the sense of Caputo, we use the Adomian decomposition method to construct the approximate solutions for the cubic nonlinear fractional Schrödinger equation with time and space fractional derivatives. The exact solution of the cubic nonlinear Schrödinger equation is given as a special case of our approximate solution. This method is efficient and powerful in solving wide classes of nonlinear evolution fractional order equation.
