The numerical solution of fractional and distributed order differential equations

Connolly, Joseph A. (University of Liverpool (University College Chester), 2004-12)

Fractional Calculus can be thought of as a generalisation of conventional calculus in the sense that it extends the concept of a derivative (integral) to include non-integer orders. Effective mathematical modelling using Fractional Differential Equations (FDEs) requires the development of reliable flexible numerical methods. The thesis begins by reviewing a selection of numerical methods for the solution of Single-term and Multi-term FDEs. We then present: 1. a graphical technique for comparing the efficiency of numerical methods. We use this to compare Single-term and Multi-term methods and give recommendations for which method is best for any given FDE. 2. a new method for the solution of a non-linear Multi-term Fractional Dif¬ferential Equation. 3. a sequence of methods for the numerical solution of a Distributed Order Differential Equation. 4. a discussion of the problems associated with producing a computer program for obtaining the optimum numerical method for any given FDE.

Systems-based decomposition schemes for the approximate solution of multi-term fractional differential equations

Ford, Neville J.; Connolly, Joseph A. (University of Chester, 2007)

We give a comparison of the efficiency of three alternative decomposition schemes for the approximate solution of multi-term fractional differential equations using the Caputo form of the fractional derivative. The schemes we compare are based on conversion of the original problem into a system of equations. We review alternative approaches and consider how the most appropriate numerical scheme may be chosen to solve a particular equation.

Insights from the parallel implementation of efficient algorithms for the fractional calculus

Banks, Nicola E. (University of Chester, 2015-07)

This thesis concerns the development of parallel algorithms to solve fractional differential equations using a numerical approach. The methodology adopted is to adapt existing numerical schemes and to develop prototype parallel programs using the MatLab Parallel Computing Toolbox (MPCT). The approach is to build on existing insights from parallel implementation of ordinary differential equations methods and to test a range of potential candidates for parallel implementation in the fractional case. As a consequence of the work, new insights on the use of MPCT for prototyping are presented, alongside conclusions and algorithms for the effective implementation of parallel methods for the fractional calculus. The principal parallel approaches considered in the work include: - A Runge-Kutta Method for Ordinary Differential Equations including the application of an adapted Richardson Extrapolation Scheme - An implementation of the Diethelm-Chern Algorithm for Fractional Differential Equations - A parallel version of the well-established Fractional Adams Method for Fractional Differential Equations - The adaptation for parallel implementation of Lubich's Fractional Multistep Method for Fractional Differential Equations An important aspect of the work is an improved understanding of the comparative diffi culty of using MPCT for obtaining fair comparisons of parallel implementation. We present details of experimental results which are not satisfactory, and we explain how the problems may be overcome to give meaningful experimental results. Therefore, an important aspect of the conclusions of this work is the advice for other users of MPCT who may be planning to use the package as a prototyping tool for parallel algorithm development: by understanding how implicit multithreading operates, controls can be put in place to allow like-for-like performance comparisons between sequential and parallel programs.
