J. Comput. Nonlinear Dynam 11(1), 011012 (Aug 12, 2015) (9 pages) Paper No: CND-14-1217; doi: 10.1115/1.4028984 History: Received September 20, 2014

In this paper, the numerical solution for the fractional order partial differential equation (PDE) of parabolic type has been presented using two dimensional (2D) Legendre wavelets method. 2D Haar wavelets method is also applied to compute the numerical solution of nonlinear time-fractional PDE. The approximate solutions of nonlinear fractional PDE thus obtained by Haar wavelet method and Legendre wavelet method are compared with the exact solution obtained by using homotopy perturbation method (HPM). The present scheme is simple, effective, and expedient for obtaining numerical solution of the fractional PDE.
