  • Abstract

We introduce a high-order numerical scheme for fractional ordinary differential equations with the Caputo derivative. The method is developed by dividing the domain into a number of subintervals, and applying the quadratic interpolation on each subinterval. The method is shown to be unconditionally stable, and for general nonlinear equations, the uniform sharp numerical order 3 − $ν$ can be rigorously proven for sufficiently smooth solutions at all time steps. The proof provides a general guide for proving the sharp order for higher-order schemes in the nonlinear case. Some numerical examples are given to validate our theoretical results.
