A new difference scheme for fractional cable equation and stability analysis
Keywords:Cable equation, Caputo fractional derivative, Difference scheme, Stability.
We consider the fractional cable equation. For solution of fractional Cable equation involving Caputo fractional derivative, a new difference scheme is constructed based on Crank Nicholson difference scheme. We prove that the proposed method is unconditionally stable by using spectral stability technique.
