Posted: 7 Nov 2018

Date Written: July 2018


In this paper we derive a new finite difference formulas using interpolating polynomial with its error term to approximate the fractional derivative of y(t) in the Caputo sense for m-1< α < m. These formulas can be used to approximate the solution of linear and nonlinear fractional differential equations.

Keywords: Fractional derivative, Caputo definition, Fractional differential equation
