This chapter describes construction of a numerical scheme to obtain the numerical solution of fractional differential equations (FDEs). The scheme is based on the generalized Taylor’s series and standard Runge–Kutta method, and FDEs with fractional derivatives in the Caputo sense are considered. FDEs have wide areas of application in science and engineering, such as convection-diffusion problems, plasma physics, mechanics, polymer physics and rheology, diffraction theory, and regular variations in thermodynamics.
