High-order Legendre collocation method for fractional-order linear semi-explicit differential algebraic equations

F. Ghanbari, K. Ghanbari, and P. Mokhtary


This paper is devoted to a high-order Legendre collocation approximation for solving fractional-order linear semi-explicit differential algebraic equations numerically. We discuss existence, uniqueness, and regularity results and conclude that the solutions typically suffer from a singularity at the origin. Moreover, we show that the representation of the approximate solutions by a linear combination of Legendre polynomials leads to unsatisfactory convergence results. To overcome this difficulty, we develop a new regularization approach that removes the singularity of the input data and produces approximate solutions of higher accuracy. Illustrative numerical examples are presented to support the obtained theoretical results.
