Abstract—Fractional calculus has recently attracted much attention in the literature. In particular, fractional derivatives are widely discussed and applied in many areas. However, it is still hard to develop numerical methods for fractional calculus. In this paper, based on Fourier series and Taylor series technique, we provide some numerical methods for computing and simulating fractional derivatives by using Matlab. Some numerical examples are also presented.

Index Terms—Fractional derivative, fractional integral, Matlab, Fourier series, Taylor series.
