The non-classical calculi such as q-calculus, fractional calculus and q-fractional calculus have been hot topics in both applied and pure sciences. Then some new linear and nonlinear models have appeared. This study mainly concentrates on the analytical aspects, and the variational iteration method is extended in a new way to solve an initial value problem.
A new Adomian decomposition method is proposed to approximately solve fractional differential equations. The iteration procedure is based on a fractional Taylor series. An example is illustrated to show the presented method's efficiency and convenience.
Context • Wrist-ankle acupuncture (WAA) has been used to relieve both chronic and acute pain in China. Some research has shown that WAA can increase the pain thresholds in pain patients, but the ability of WAA to affect the pain thresholds in healthy adults is unknown. Objective • The study intended to assess the influence of WAA on the pain thresholds of… (More)
