  • A Galerkin-Type Fractional Approach for Solutions of Bagley-Torvik Equations
  • Abstract In this study, we present a numerical scheme similar to the Galerkin method in order to obtain numerical solutions of the Bagley Torvik equation of fractional order 3/2. In this approach, the approximate solution is assumed to have the form of a polynomial in the variable t = xα , where α is a positive real parameter of our choice. The problem is firstly expressed in vectoral form via substituting the matrix counterparts of the terms present in the equation. After taking inner product of this vector with nonnegative integer powers of t up to a selected positive parameter N,… More

  • RBF Based Localized Method for Solving Nonlinear Partial Integro-Differential Equations
  • Abstract In this work, a numerical scheme is constructed for solving nonlinear parabolictype partial-integro differential equations. The proposed numerical scheme is based on radial basis functions which are local in nature like finite difference numerical schemes. The radial basis functions are used to approximate the derivatives involved and the integral is approximated by equal width integration rule. The resultant differentiation matrices are sparse in nature. After spatial approximation using RBF the partial integro-differential equations reduce to the system of ODEs. Then ODEs system can be solved by various types of ODE solvers. The proposed numerical scheme is tested and compared with… More

  • Bell Polynomial Approach for the Solutions of Fredholm Integro-Differential Equations with Variable Coefficients
  • Abstract In this article, we approximate the solution of high order linear Fredholm integro-differential equations with a variable coefficient under the initial-boundary conditions by Bell polynomials. Using collocation points and treating the solution as a linear combination of Bell polynomials, the problem is reduced to linear system of equations whose unknown variables are Bell coefficients. The solution to this algebraic system determines the approximate solution. Error estimation of approximate solution is done. Some examples are provided to illustrate the performance of the method. The numerical results are compared with the collocation method based on Legendre polynomials and the other two methods… More

  • An ADI Finite Volume Element Method for a Viscous Wave Equation with Variable Coefficients
  • Abstract Based on rectangular partition and bilinear interpolation, we construct an alternating-direction implicit (ADI) finite volume element method, which combined the merits of finite volume element method and alternating direction implicit method to solve a viscous wave equation with variable coefficients. This paper presents a general procedure to construct the alternating-direction implicit finite volume element method and gives computational schemes. Optimal error estimate in L2 norm is obtained for the schemes. Compared with the finite volume element method of the same convergence order, our method is more effective in terms of running time with the increasing of the computing scale. Numerical… More

  • A Discrete Model of TB Dynamics in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa-Pakistan
  • Abstract The present paper investigates the theoretical analysis of the tuberculosis (TB) model in the discrete-time case. The model is parameterized by the TB infection cases in the Pakistani province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa between 2002 and 2017. The model is parameterized and the basic reproduction number is obtained and it is found R0 ¼ 1:5853. The stability analysis for the model is presented and it is shown that the discrete-time tuberculosis model is stable at the disease-free equilibrium whenever R0 < 1 and further we establish the results for the endemic equilibria and prove that the model is globally asymptotically stable… More

  • RBF-FD Method for Some Dispersive Wave Equations and Their Eventual Periodicity
  • Abstract In this paper, we approximate the solution and also discuss the periodic behavior termed as eventual periodicity of solutions of (IBVPs) for some dispersive wave equations on a bounded domain corresponding to periodic forcing. The constructed numerical scheme is based on radial kernels and local in nature like finite difference method. The temporal variable is executed through RK4 scheme. Due to the local nature and sparse differentiation matrices our numerical scheme efficiently recovers the solution. The results achieved are validated and examined with other methods accessible in the literature. More

  • Modelling of Energy Storage Photonic Medium by WavelengthBased Multivariable Second-Order Differential Equation
  • Abstract Wavelength-dependent mathematical modelling of the differential energy change of a photon has been performed inside a proposed hypothetical optical medium. The existence of this medium demands certain mathematical constraints, which have been derived in detail. Using reverse modelling, a medium satisfying the derived conditions is proven to store energy as the photon propagates from the entry to exit point. A single photon with a given intensity is considered in the analysis and hypothesized to possess a definite non-zero probability of maintaining its energy and velocity functions analytic inside the proposed optical medium, despite scattering, absorption, fluorescence, heat generation, and other… More

  • On Caputo-Type Cable Equation: Analysis and Computation
  • Abstract In this paper, a special case of nonlinear time fractional cable equation is studied. For the equation defined on a bounded domain, the existence, uniqueness, and regularity of the solution are firstly studied. Furthermore, it is numerically studied via the weighted and shifted Grünwald difference (WSGD) methods/the local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) finite element methods. The derived numerical scheme has been proved to be stable and convergent with order O(∆t2 + hk+1), where ∆t, h, k are the time stepsize, the spatial stepsize, and the degree of piecewise polynomials, respectively. Finally, a numerical experiment is presented to verify the theoretical analysis. More

  • Fractional Analysis of Viscous Fluid Flow with Heat and Mass Transfer Over a Flexible Rotating Disk
  • Abstract An unsteady viscous fluid flow with Dufour and Soret effect, which results in heat and mass transfer due to upward and downward motion of flexible rotating disk, has been studied. The upward or downward motion of non rotating disk results in two dimensional flow, while the vertical action and rotation of the disk results in three dimensional flow. By using an appropriate transformation the governing equations are transformed into the system of ordinary differential equations. The system of ordinary differential equations is further converted into first order differential equation by selecting suitable variables. Then, we generalize the model by using… More

There is a slip-on both the slider and the ground in the two cases, for example, a long porous slider and a circular porous slider. By utilizing similarity transformation Navier-Stokes equations are converted into coupled equations which are tackled by Integral Transform Method. Solutions are obtained for different values of Reynolds numbers, velocity slip, and magnetic field. We found that surface slip and Reynolds number has a substantial influence on the lift and drag of long… More
