Quadratic B-Spline Galerkin Method for Numerical Solutions of Fractional Telegraph Equations

Full Text PDF


In this study, the authors employed the quadratic B-spline Galerkin method to solve time fractional order telegraph equations. Three model problems are consideredto implement the method. L2, L error norms and numerical results have been presented in tables. Absolute error graphics for all the exact and numerical solutionshave been given
