Abstract — In the present paper we discussed the application of Sumudu transform as well as Laplace transform to solve some fractional order differential using Caputo differential operator. Sumudu method is found to be fast and accurate whereas Laplace transform will allow us to transform fractional differential equations into algebraic equations and then by solving these algebraic equations, we can obtain the unknown function by using the Inverse Laplace transform. The results presented here are in compact and elegant expressed in term of Mittag-Leffler function and generalized Mittag-Leffler function which are suitable for numerical computation. Illustrative examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the presented technique. Solving some problems show that the Sumudu and Laplace transforms are powerful and efficient techniques for obtaining analytic solution of linear fractional differential equations.

1. INTRODUCTION

The subject of fractional calculus (that is, calculus of integrals and derivatives of any arbitrary real or complex order) has gained considerable popularity during the last three decades or so. Being a generalization of classical calculus it preserves many of the

basic properties and became an intensively developing area of calculus which provides useful tools for solving differential and integral equations, and various other problems of mathematical physics.

The origin of fractional calculus can be traced back to

Electrochemistry of corrosion, Chemical physics, optics and Signal processing and so on.

In this paper, we begin by introducing some necessary definitions of The Riemann-Liouville and Caputo fractional derivatives. In section 2, the Laplace transform, inverse Laplace transform, Sumudu Transform and some useful Lemmas are discussed in details. In section 3, Illustrative examples are included to demonstrate the procedure of solution of fractional differential equation using Laplace and Sumudu transformation.

Definition 1

The Gamma function denoted by (),is a generalization of factorial function! For complex argument with positive real part it is defined as 

0

0

() = 1 Re(z) > 0

By analytic continuation the function is extended to whole complex plane except for the points{ 0, -1, -2, -3, . . .} where it has simple poles.

( + 1) = (), () = ( 1)!

Definition: 2

While the Gamma function is a generalization of factorial function, the Mittag-Leffler function is a generalization of exponential function, first introduced as a one parameter function by the series

Leibnizs alone, who wrote a letter to L'Hospital in 1695, To this L'Hospital replied with a question of his own: What if

() = ( + 1) , > 0, ,

=0

the order will be 1 ? To this, Leibniz said: It will lead to a

2

paradox, from which one day useful consequences will be

drawn Fractional calculus plays a vital role in the analysis of scientific problems in abroad array of fields such as physics, engineering, biology and economics. Some of the areas of present day applications of fractional calculus includes Fluid flow, Rheology, Dynamical process in Self- Similar and porous structure, diffusive transport and diffusion, Electrical networks, Probability and Statistics, Control theory of dynamical system, Viscoelasticity,

Later the two parameter generalization introduced by Agarwal

,() = ( + ) , , > 0, , ,

For special choices of the values of the parameters , we obtain well-known classical functions.

.

(c) Let , , , , > 0, . Then the Laplace transform of the two parameter function of Mittag-Leffler type is given by

{+1,()(Â±)} =

Definition : 4

Another definition that can be used to compute a differ integral was introduced by Caputo in

the 1960s. The benefit of using the Caputo definition is that it not only allows for the consideration of easily interpreted initial conditions, but it is also bounded, meaning that the derivative of a constant is equal to 0.

Suppose that > 0, > , , , . Then fractional
