Variable-order FDEs: solve fractional differential equations (FDEs) of variable-order (VO) with order transition of exponential-type
Updated 3 Aug 2023

FDE_VO_Exponential.m solves an initial value problem for a linear or non-linear fractional differential equation (FDE) of fractional variable-order (VO), where the VO fractional derivative is defined according to the approach discussed in [1] and the VO function realizes an exponential transition from alpha1 to alpha2 with rate c, namely alpha(t) = alpha2 + (alpha1-alpha2)*exp(-ct). Systems of VO-FDEs are possible but the order function is the same for each equation.
The code implements an implicit first-order convolution quadrature rule discussed and implemented in [2] according to the theory previously developed in [3]
USAGE:
[T,Y] = FDE_VO_Exponential(ALPHA,F_FUN,J_FUN,T0,TFINAL,Y0,H) integrates the initial value problem for the variable-order fractional differential equation (FDE), or the system of variable-order FDEs,
D^ALPHA(t) Y(t) = F_FUN(T,Y(T))
Y(T0) = Y0
where the variable order function ALPHA(t) realizes the exponential transition from 0<alpha1<1 to 0<alpha2<1 with rate c>0 given by ALPHA(t) = alpha2 + (alpha1-alpha2)*exp(-ct)
DESCRIPTION OF PARAMETERS
ALPHA: is a vector with three entries describing alpha1, alpha2 and c; alpha1 and alpha2 must be in (0,1) and c must be > 0.
F_FUN: function handle describing the vector field F_FUN(t,Y(t)). It can be a vector-valued function if a system of variable-order fractional differential equations is solved
J_FUN: function handle describing the Jacobian of the vector field. If F_FUN is a vactor-valued function, J_FUN must be a matrix-valued function
T0, TFINAL: intial and final time of integration
Y0: initial condition. It must be a vector of the same size of F_FUN
H: positive step-size
