  • Abstract

Two implicit finite difference schemes combined with the Alikhanov’s L2-1σformula are applied to one- and two-dimensional time fractional reaction-diffusion equations with variable coefficients and time drift term. The unconditional stability and L2 - convergence of the methods are established. It is shown that the convergence order of the methods is equal to 2 both in time and space. Numerical experiments confirm the theoretical results. Moreover, since the arising linear systems can be ill-conditioned, three preconditioned iterative methods are employed.
