ABSTRACT In this paper, we study a space-fractional anomalous
diffusion in a variable area. The moving boundary is assumed moving with
constant speed. The numerical scheme was present by changing the moving
boundary to a fixed one. The steady-state approximation was also given to show
the properties of the diffusion process.
