In this paper, the approximated analytical solution for the fractional Swift–Hohenberg (S–H) equation has been investigated with the help of the residual power series method (RPSM). To ensure the applicability and efficiency of the proposed technique, we consider a non-linear fractional order Swift–Hohenberg equation in the presence and absence of dispersive terms. The effect of bifurcation and dispersive parameters with physical importance on the probability density function for distinct fractional Brownian and standard motions are studied and presented through plots. The results obtained show that the proposed technique is simple to implement and very effective for analyzing the complex problems that arise in connected areas of science and technology.

Fractional calculus (FC) is a general expansion of integer order calculus to arbitrary order and was discussed in an early letter between the mathematicians Leibniz and L’Hospital in 1695. In recent years, many authors have started to study the fractional calculus due to its ability to provide an exact description for various types of non-linear phenomena. Fractional order differential equations are the generalization of traditional differential equations having non-local and genetic consequence in material properties. The concept of fractional calculus was studied and described by many senior scholars and they defined revolutionary definitions of fractional calculus, which laid the foundations for fractional calculus [1,2,3,4,5,6,7]. Nowadays, fractional partial differential equations have gained popularity in developing procedure for non-linear models and investigation of dynamical systems. The theory of fractional-order calculus has been related to practical projects and it has been applied to analyze and study different phenomena including chaos theory , financial models , a noisy environment , optics , and others [12,13,14,15]. The solutions of fractional differential equations play a vital role in describing the characteristics of non-linear problems that arise in nature. It is difficult to obtain exact solutions for the fractional differential equations describing non-linear phenomena, so we come across various analytical and numerical techniques.
The Swift–Hohenberg (S–H) equation was introduced and nurtured by Jack Swift and Pierre Hohenberg, as a universal model of the Rayleigh–Benard convective instability of the fluid with thermal fluctuations for fluid velocity dynamics and temperature of convection .
The Swift–Hohenberg equation plays a vital role in pattern formation theory (specifically, the mechanism of the amplitude of optical electrical field in the interior of cavity, the pattern within thin vibrated granular layers and so on) in fluid layers confined between horizontal well-conducting boundaries . The proposed problem serves as a paradigm for a motivating plethora of localized as well as non-localized patterns that originate in various biological structures [18,19,20]. In many physical phenomena including the study of lasers, hydrodynamics, liquid crystals, flame dynamics and statistical mechanics [21,22,23], the portrayal of the S–H equation is very essential. In the present investigation, we consider the time-fractional non-linear S–H equation [24,25] as follows:and in the presence of the dispersive term  as:where is probability density function, and are respectively dispersive and bifurcation parameters.
In this paper, the solution for a fractional S–H equation has been investigated by employing the residual power series method (RPSM). The future technique was proposed by Arqub to analyze and find the solution for strongly non-linear problems arising in science and technology [27,28]. This technique does not necessitate any change while moving from the first order to the higher order. Due to this, the future technique can be directly employed to the considered problems by picking suitable initial conditions. By this method, we obtain an analytic Taylor series solution. The proposed scheme does not require linearization, discretization or perturbation and, additionally, it will decrease huge mathematical computations, requires less computer memory, and is free from obtaining difficult polynomials, integrations and physical parameters. It provides us with extremely large freedom to choose the equation type of linear sub-problems, initial guess, and base function of the solution; due to this, complicated non-linear differential equations can often be solved in a simple way. It is worth mentioning that, the proposed method can reduce the computation of the time and work as compared with other traditional techniques while maintaining the efficiency of the results obtained.
Recently, due to its consistency and efficacy, it has aided by many researchers to interpret results for various kinds of nonlinear problem, like the authors in ; analyze and find the solution for the Biswas–Milovic equation having fractional order; the arbitrary order Schrodinger equation has been profitably analyzed in ; the authors in  employed it to find the solution for the Fisher equation with fractional order; the applicability and efficiency of RPSM is presented in  to solve PDEs; scholars in , have analyzed coupled equations arising in fluid flow; and many other are aided by the considered scheme to analyze and find the solution for complex non-linear problems describing complex phenomena.
The solution for the S–H equation is studied by many scholars using distinct techniques like Vishal et al. who employed Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM)  and Homotopy Perturbation Transform Method (HPTM) , Merdan who studied with the help of the variational iteration technique using the Riemann–Liouville derivative , Khan et al. who used the differential transform technique , and others [35,36,37,38]. Motivated by the above work, we find the approximated analytical solution for proposed problem by using RPSM.
We recall the definitions and basic notions of the fractional calculus and Laplace transform, which will be used in the present frame work:

3. Basic Idea of Proposed Algorithm
In this segment, we present a fundamental solution procedure of the proposed technique. We consider the following generalized non-linear fractional differential equation to present the basic idea of RPSM as follows:with initial condition,where symbolised the Caputo fractional derivative for the function , is the non-linear term and is linear term. The solution for Equation (10) in a fractional power series about the initial point is proposed by RPSM as follows:The truncated series of is defined as follows:The RPS approximate solution of is given by:Now, from Equation (13) we have:We define the residual function for Equation (10) as follows:Then, the residual function becomes:As in [40,41], it is clear that and . Therefore, , since the fractional derivative of a constant in the Caputo sense is zero and the fractional derivatives of and are matching at for each ; that is .
Now, we consider , in Equation (13) to evaluate f1(x), f2(x), f3(x), …, and put the obtained values in Equation (15), then on applying the fractional derivative in both results we have:

5. Numerical Results and Discussion
The solution for a fractional order non-linear S–H equation is obtained in present framework with the aid of RPSM for both cases in the domain . Furthermore, the consequences of dispersion and bifurcation on the solution obtained are presented in Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3, Figure 4, Figure 5, Figure 6, Figure 7, Figure 8, Figure 9 and Figure 10. The overshoot of Figure 1 reveals that the surfaces of the solution obtained for distinct fractional order considered in Example 1 at , and in the same manner the nature of the RPSM solution for is presented in Figure 2. These plots help us to understand the behaviour of probability density function with changing space and time-scale variables. The nature of obtained solution for Example 1 at distinct values of time () for and is presented in Figure 3, and for the corresponding equation the behaviour of the solution obtained for distinct is plotted in Figure 4.
The nature of the RPSM solution for the FSH equation considered in Example 2 is captured in Figure 5, Figure 6, Figure 7, Figure 8, Figure 9 and Figure 10. The surfaces of the solution obtained for the FSH equation with dispersion considered in Equation (33) with diverse is presented in Figure 5 and Figure 6, respectively, for and 10. Figure 7 presents the temperament of the obtained solution with gradual changes of time at and . Figure 8 and Figure 9 show that, for the nature of damping is maximum when and there is no damping at , and increases with decreasing . As compared to , the damping is minimum for the corresponding equation at and is cited in Figure 8 and Figure 9, and we can see that the nature of curves changes and solution lose their periodicity. In Figure 10, we plot the solution obtained for diverse at and . The present investigation will benefit the scholars working in the pattern formation theory, laser patterns and statistical mechanics to understand the behaviour of the probability density function.
In this paper, we applied RPSM to find the approximate analytical solution for a non-linear S–H equation of fractional order with the absence and presence of the dispersion term. The consequences of dispersion and bifurcation parameters on the probability density function for the proposed fruition equation is analyzed in terms of plots, and the time and space domain are also illustrated during the investigation. From these results, we learned that both dispersion and fractional order parameters control the nature of the probability density function. The oscillatory value and ) of the bifurcation parameter specifies the behaviour of hydrodynamic stability. Finally, from the results obtained we can conclude that the proposed algorithm is highly efficient and can be employed to examine a wide class of non-linear fractional order mathematical models for understanding the nature of complex phenomena.
