This paper is devoted to the numerical approximation of the diffusion equation with distributed order in time. A numerical method is proposed in the case where the order of the time derivative is distributed over the interval [0, 1], and results concerning the stability and convergence of that scheme are provided. Two numerical examples are presented(More)
In this work we are concerned with the numerical solution of a nonlinear weakly singular Volterra integral equation with a nonsmooth solution. We investigate the application of product integration methods and a detailed analysis of the Trapezoidal method is given. In order to improve the numerical results we consider extrapolation procedures and collocation(More)
In this work, we develop a meshfree method based on fundamental solutions basis functions for a transmission problem in linear elasticity. The problem here addressed, consists in computing the displacement field of an elastic object, which has piecewise constant Lamé coefficients, from a given displacement field on the boundary. The Lamé coefficients are(More)
In this paper we present a shooting algorithm to solve fractional terminal (or boundary) value problems. We provide a convergence analysis of the numerical method, derived based upon properties of the equation being solved and without the need to impose smoothness conditions on the solution. The work is a sequel to our recent investigation where we(More)
This work is concerned with the numerical solution of a nonlinear weakly singular Volterra integral equation. We investigate the application of product integration methods and a detailed analysis of the Trapezoidal method is given. In order to improve the numerical results we consider extrapolation procedures and collocation methods based on graded meshes.(More)
