In 2015, Shijun Liao introduced a new method of directly defining the inverse mapping (MDDiM) to approximate analytically a nonlinear differential equation. This method, based on the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) was proposed to reduce the time it takes in solving a nonlinear equation. Very recently, Dewasurendra, Baxter and Vajravelu (Applied Mathematics and Computation 339 (2018) 758–767) extended the method to a system of two nonlinear differential equations. In this paper, we extend it further to obtain the solution to a system of three nonlinear differential equations describing the HIV infection of CD4+ T-cells. In addition, we analyzed the advantages of MDDiM over HAM, in obtaining the numerical results. From these results, we noticed that the infected CD4+ T-cell density increases with the number of virions N; but decreases with the blanket death rate μI.
In this paper, we propose a new approximate method, namely fractional natural decomposition method (FNDM) in order to solve a certain class of nonlinear time-fractional wave-like equations with variable coefficients. The fractional natural decomposition method is a combined form of the natural transform method and the Adomian decomposition method. The nonlinear term can easily be handled with the help of Adomian polynomials which is considered to be a clear advantage of this technique over the decomposition method. Some examples are given to illustrate the applicability and the easiness of this approach.
In this paper, we present numerical solution for the fractional Bratu-type equation via fractional residual power series method (FRPSM). The fractional derivatives are described in Caputo sense. The main advantage of the FRPSM in comparison with the existing methods is that the method solves the nonlinear problems without using linearization, discretization, perturbation or any other restriction. Three numerical examples are given and the results are numerically and graphically compared with the exact solutions. The solutions obtained by the proposed method are in complete agreement with the solutions available in the literature. The results reveal that the FRPSM is a very effective, simple and efficient technique to handle a wide range of fractional differential equations.
This work presents a numerical comparison between two efficient methods namely the fractional natural variational iteration method (FNVIM) and the fractional natural homotopy perturbation method (FNHPM) to solve a certain type of nonlinear Caputo time-fractional partial differential equations in particular, nonlinear Caputo time-fractional wave-like equations with variable coefficients. These two methods provided an accurate and efficient tool for solving this type of equations. To show the efficiency and capability of the proposed methods we have solved some numerical examples. The results show that there is an excellent agreement between the series solutions obtained by these two methods. However, the FNVIM has an advantage over FNHPM because it takes less time to solve this type of nonlinear problems without using He’s polynomials. In addition, the FNVIM enables us to overcome the diffi-culties arising in identifying the general Lagrange multiplier and it may be considered as an added advantage of this technique compared to the FNHPM.
