Abstract. Fractional differential equations have recently been applied in various area of engineering, science, finance, applied mathematics, bio-engineering and others. However, many researchers remain unaware of this field. In this paper, an efficient numerical method for solving the fractional delay differential equations (FDDEs) is considered. The fractional derivative is described in the Caputo sense. The method is based upon Legendre approximations. The properties of Legendre polynomials are utilized to reduce FDDEs to linear or nonlinear system of algebraic equations. Numerical simulation with the exact solutions of FDDEs is presented.
