We define the fractional-order Legendre functions (FLFs) by introducing the change of variable t = [x.sup.[alpha]] and [alpha] > 0 on shifted Legendre polynomials.
A new operational matrix of integration for fractional-order Legendre functions (FLFs) is first derived.
The general solution of this equation is suitable written as a linear combination of associated the third kind Legendre functions [R.sup.[+ or -]1/2.sub.v] [3].
The most important special functions are known as: Bessel functions, Hermite functions, Legendre functions, Laguerre functions, Chebyshev functions etc., [10].
