J. Comput. Nonlinear Dynam 9(2), 021019 (Feb 12, 2014) (4 pages) Paper No: CND-13-1010; doi: 10.1115/1.4025770 History: Received January 18, 2013; Revised August 29, 2013

The fractional Fan subequation method of the fractional Riccati equation is applied to construct the exact solutions of some nonlinear fractional evolution equations. In this paper, a powerful algorithm is developed for the exact solutions of the modified equal width equation, the Fisher equation, the nonlinear Telegraph equation, and the Cahn–Allen equation of fractional order. Fractional derivatives are described in the sense of the modified Riemann–Liouville derivative. Some relevant examples are investigated.
