Fourier Truncation Method for Fractional Numerical Differentiation
Abstract: We consider a ill-posed problem-fractional numerical differentiation with a new method. We propose Fourier truncation method to compute fractional numerical derivatives. A Holder-type stability estimate is obtained. A numerical implementation is described. Numerical examples show that the proposed method is effective and stable.
