Numerical approximation for the fractional advection-diffusion equation using a high order difference scheme

Zahra Mahboob Dana; Hashem Saberi Najafi; Amir Hossein Refahi Sheikhani

Volume 8, Issue 1 , March 2021, Pages 90-103

  In this paper, a one-dimensional fractional advection-diffusion equation is considered. First, we propose a numerical approximation of the Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative which is fourth-order accurate, then a numerical method for the fractional advection-diffusion equation using a high order ...  Read More
