  • Abstract

Based on convolution quadrature in time and continuous piecewise linear finite element approximation in space, a Crank-Nicolson type method is proposed for solving a partial differential equation involving a fractional time derivative. The method achieves second-order convergence in time without being corrected at the initial steps. Optimal-order error estimates are derived under regularity assumptions on the source and initial data but without having to assume regularity of the solution.
