Abstract This paper is devoted to investigating the numerical solution for a class of fractional diffusion-wave equations with a variable coefficient where the fractional derivatives are described in the Caputo sense. Introduction Fractional models have been increasingly shown by many scientists to describe adequately the problems with memory and nonlocal properties in fluid mechanics, viscoelasticity, physics, biology, chemistry, finance, and other areas of applications [ 1 — 6 ].

Notations and Some Preliminary Results In this section, we introduce some basic definitions and derive several preliminary results for developing the presented method.

The Composite Translated Sinc Functions The sinc functions and their properties are discussed in [ 23 , 24 ]. Numerical Examples To validate the effectiveness of the proposed method for problem 1 with 2 and 3 , we consider the example given in [ 16 ]. Open in a separate window. Figure 1. Figure 2. Figure 3. Figure 4.

Figure 5. Conclusion In this paper, we develop and analyze the efficient numerical methods for the fractional diffusion-wave equation.
