Caputo derivative; numerical methods; initial value problem
Numerical methods for fractional differential equations have specific properties with respect to the ones for ordinary differential equations. The paper discusses Euler methods for Caputo differential equation initial value problem. The common properties of the methods are stated and demonstrated by several numerical experiments. Python codes are available to researchers for numerical simulations.
