J. Comput. Nonlinear Dynam 10(6), 061016 (Nov 01, 2015) (6 pages) Paper No: CND-14-1174; doi: 10.1115/1.4029281 History: Received July 26, 2014; Revised November 27, 2014; Online April 09, 2015

In this paper, the operational matrix of Euler functions for fractional derivative of order β in the Caputo sense is derived. Via this matrix, we develop an efficient collocation method for solving nonlinear fractional Volterra integro-differential equations. Illustrative examples are given to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the proposed method, and the comparisons are made with the existing results.
