Analysis of fractional duffing oscillator


  • S.C. Eze University of Nigeria



Fractional calculus, fractional Duffing oscillator, analytical method.


In this contribution, a simple analytical method (which is an elegant combination of a well known methods; perturbation method and Laplace method) for solving non-linear and non-homogeneous fractional differential equations is pro- posed. In particular, the proposed method was used to analysed the fractional Duffing oscillator.The technique employed in this method can be used to analyse other nonlinear fractional differential equations, and can also be extended to non- linear partial fractional differential equations.The performance of this method is reliable, effective and gives more general solution.
