Solving fuzzy fractional differential equations using Zadeh's extension principle

ScientificWorldJournal. 2013 Sep 4;2013:454969. doi: 10.1155/2013/454969. eCollection 2013.


We study a fuzzy fractional differential equation (FFDE) and present its solution using Zadeh's extension principle. The proposed study extends the case of fuzzy differential equations of integer order. We also propose a numerical method to approximate the solution of FFDEs. To solve nonlinear problems, the proposed numerical method is then incorporated into an unconstrained optimisation technique. Several numerical examples are provided.
