We introduce the rudiments of fractional calculus and the consequent applications of the Sumudu transform on fractional
derivatives. Once this connection is firmly established in the general setting, we turn to the application of the Sumudu transform
method (STM) to some interesting nonhomogeneous fractional ordinary differential equations (FODEs). Finally, we use the
solutions to form two-dimensional (2D) graphs, by using the symbolic algebra package Mathematica Program 7.

1. Introduction
The Sumudu transform was first defined in its current
shape by Watugala as early as 1993, which he used to solve
engineering control problems. Although he might have had
ideas for it sooner than that (1989) as some conference
proceedings showed, he used it to control engineering problems [1, 2]. Later, Watugala extended in 2002 the Sumudu
transform to two variables [3]. The first applications to
differential equations and inversion formulae were done by
Weerakoon in two papers in 1994 and 1998 [4, 5]. The
Sumudu transform was also first defended by Weerakoon
against Deakin’s definition who claimed that there is no
difference between the Sumudu and the Laplace and who
reminded Weerakoon that the Sumudu transform is really the
Carson or the S-multiplied transform disguised [6, 7]. The
applications followed in three consecutive papers by Asiru
dealing with the convolution-type integral equations and the
discrete dynamic systems [8, 9]. At this point, Belgacem et
al. using previous references and connections to the Laplace
transform extended the theory and the applications of the
Sumudu transform in [10–17] to various applications. In
the meantime, subsequent to exchanges between Belgacem
and other scholars, the following papers sprang up in the
last decade [18–22]. Moreover, the Sumudu transform was

also used to solve many ordinary differential equations with
integer order [23–29]. The application of STM turns out to
be pragmatic in getting analytical solution of the fractional
ordinary differential equations fast. Notably, implementations of difference methods such as in the differential transform method (DTM), the Adomian decomposition method
(ADM) [30–33], the variational iteration method (VIM)
[34–40] empowered us to achieve approximate solutions of
various ordinary differential equations. STM [41–44] which
is newly submitted to the literature is a suitable technique for
solving various kinds of ordinary differential equations with
fractional order (FODEs). In this sense, it is estimated that
this novel approach that is used to solve homogeneous and
nonhomogeneous problems will be particularly valuable as a
tool for scientists and applied mathematicians.

2. Fundamental Properties of Fractional
Calculus and STM
2.1. Fundamental Facts of the Fractional Calculus. Firstly, we
mention some of the fundamental properties of the fractional
calculus. Fractional derivatives (and integrals as well) definitions may differ, but the most widely used definitions are
those of Abel-Riemann (A-R). Following the nomenclature
