Abstract

In this article, a coupling of the variational iteration method with the Sumudu transform via the local fractional calculus operator is proposed for the first time. As a testing example, the exact solution for the local fractional diffusion equation in fractal one-dimensional space is obtained. The method provided an accurate and efficient technique for solving the local fractional PDEs.
