Numerical computation for solving fuzzy differential equations

Fuziyah Ishak, Najihah Chaini


Fuzzy differential equations (FDEs) play important roles in modeling dynamic systems in science, economics and engineering. The modeling roles are important because most problems in nature are indistinct and uncertain. Numerical methods are needed to solve FDEs since it is difficult to obtain exact solutions. Many approaches have been studied and explored by previous researchers to solve FDEs numerically. Most FDEs are solved by adapting numerical solutions of ordinary differential equations. In this study, we propose the extended Trapezoidal method to solve first order initial value problems of FDEs. The computed results are compared to that of Euler and Trapezoidal methods in terms of errors in order to test the accuracy and validity of the proposed method. The results shown that the extended Trapezoidal method is more accurate in terms of absolute error. Since the extended Trapezoidal method has shown to be an efficient method to solve FDEs, this brings an idea for future researchers to explore and improve the existing numerical methods for solving more general FDEs.
