Solving fractional difference equations by discrete Adomian decomposition method

Figen Özpınar


In this paper, we propose the discrete Adomian decomposition method(DADM) to solve linear as well as nonlinear fractional partial difference equations and provide few examples to illustrate the applicability of proposed method.  The results show that DADM is efficient, accurate and can be applied to other fractional difference equations.
