ABSTRACT

Newell Whitehead Segal (NWS) equation has been used in describing many natural phenomena arising in fluid mechanics and hence acquired more attention. Studies in the past gave importance to obtaining numerical or analytical solutions of this kind of equations by employing methods like Modified Homotopy Analysis Transform method (MHATM), Adomian Decomposition method (ADM), Homotopy Analysis Sumudu Transform method (HASTM), Fractional Complex Transform (FCT) coupled with He's polynomials method (FCT-HPM) and Fractional Residual Power Series method (FRPSM). This research aims to demonstrate an efficient analytical method called the Sumudu Decomposition Method (SDM) for the study of analytical and numerical solutions of the NWS of fractional order. The coupling of Adomian Decomposition method with Sumudu transform method simplifies the calculation. From the numerical results obtained, it is evident that SDM is easy to execute and offers accurate results for the NWS equation than with other methods such as FCT-HPM and FRPSM. Therefore, it is easy to apply the coupling of Adomian Decomposition technique with Sumudu transform method, and when applied to nonlinear differential equations of fractional order, it yields accurate results.
