## Abstract

Recently, much interests have been paid in studying fractional calculus due to its effectiveness in modeling many of the natural phenomena. Motivated essentially by the success of the applications of the orthogonal polynomials, this paper is mainly devoted to developing Laguerre equation and Laguerre polynomials in the fractional calculus setting. We provide some type of generalizations of the classical Laguerre polynomials, via conformable fractional calculus. We start by solving the fractional Laguerre equation in the sense of conformable calculus about the fractional regular singular point. Next, we write the conformable fractional Laguerre polynomials (CFLPs), through various generating functions. Subsequently, Rodrigues’ type representation formula of fractional order is reported, besides certain types of recurrence relations are then developed. The conformable fractional integral and the fractional Laplace transform, and the orthogonal property of CFLPs, are established. As an application, we present a numerical technique to obtain solutions of interesting differential equations in the frame of conformable derivative. For this purpose, a new operational matrix of the fractional derivative of arbitrary order for CFLPs is derived. This operational matrix is applied together with the generalized Laguerre tau method for solving general linear multi-term fractional differential equations (FDEs). The method has the advantage of obtaining the solution in terms of the CFLPs’ parameters. Finally, some examples are given to illustrate the applicability and efficiency of the proposed method.
