#### Abstract

The present research work is devoted to investigate fractional order Benjamin-Bona-Mahony (FBBM) as well as modified fractional order FBBM (FMBBM) equations under nonlocal and nonsingular derivative of Caputo-Fabrizio (CF). In this regards, some qualitative results including the existence of at least one solution are established via using some fixed point results of Krasnoselskii and Banach. Further on using an iterative method, some semianalytical results are also studied. The concerned tool is formed when the Adomian decomposition method is coupled with some integral transform like Laplace. Graphical presentations are given for various fractional orders. Also, the concerned method is also compared with some variational-type perturbation method to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed method.

#### 1. Introduction

Fractional calculus is the generalized form of classical calculus. With the rapid change in science and technology, the aforesaid area has attracted the attention of many researchers. The mentioned branch has many applications in different areas of science like modeling, control theory, physics, signal processing, economics, and chemistry [1–4]. Different researchers have studied fractional differential equations (FODEs) in their own way, including the stability aspect, qualitative theory, optimization, and numerical simulations. Many real-world problems are nonlinear in nature, and their investigation is important for fruitful information. Therefore, researchers have studied various problems of FODEs by using different techniques and methods. One of the important aspects is the existence theory of solution which has given proper attention in the last years [5–11]. By using the fixed point theory, the existence theory to numerous problems has been established [12–16]. The authors in [17–22] also studied different aspects of FODEs using a derivative with nonsingular kernel and Laplace transform. Therefore, we intend to establish the aforementioned theory for the following problem with where and . The existence of at least one solution of (1) has been studied with the help of a fixed point approach, since the differential operator involving fractional order have a great degree of freedom. Therefore, it comprehensively describes many dynamical properties and characteristic of various processes/phenomena [23, 24]. Then, we establish an algorithm to compute the approximate analytical solutions for the following cases of BBM equations with as

*Case 1. *

*Case 2. *

*Case 3. *where is a real constant. The abovementioned problems are also called regularized long-wave equation which is the improved form of the Korteweg-de Vries equation (KDVE). Such equation has been largely used for modeling of waves of small amplitudes and in the soliton theory of fractals and dynamics. Moreover, KDVE has countless integrals of motion and BBM has only three [25–32]. For generalized -dimensional BBM equation and its applications, we refer to [25, 33, 34]. The aforementioned equation has been studied in surface waves of a long period of fluid [26]. Also, for the dynamic aspect of the BBM equation, we refer [35]. The mentioned equation is not only suitable for superficial waves but also for acoustic and hydromagnetic waves; because of this, the BBM equation has upper hand on KDVE. We enrich our study by investigating the modified form of BBM equation abbreviated as MBBM [36]. We use the decomposition method coupled with Laplace transform to establish series solution to our proposed problems (2), (3), and (4). The mentioned problems have been studied by the homotopy perturbation method (HPM), variational method (VHPM), wavelet method, etc., but these studies are limited to fractional order derivative involving the usual Caputo and integer order derivative. To the best of authors’ information, no study exists in the present literature to address the investigation of the aforesaid problems under nonsingular CF derivative. The mentioned derivative was introduced in 2016 and has been found suitable in applications of many thermal problems. The concerned nonlocal integral of CF for a function is the average of the function and its Riemann integral which works as a filter, for various applications of the concerned derivative, we refer to [12, 13, 18, 19]. So far, we know that there is no investigation present in the literature which addresses the study of the mentioned problems under nonlocal and nonsingular kernel derivatives with fractional order. We establish some qualitative results of the existence of at least one solution by Krasnoselskii and Banach fixed point results. Further, by the proposed method of Laplace transform coupled with Adomian decomposition (LADM), we compute the series solution whose convergence is also studied. Also, the results are compared with the results of VHPM. The results reveal that the proposed method can also be used as a powerful tool to find approximate results to many nonlinear problems.

If we put in the approximate solution, we get the solution at the integer order. Now, we compare the four-term LADM solution with the four-term solution of VHPM given in [40] in Table 1 at . From Table 1, we see that the absolute error between exact solutions and four*-*term LADM solutions at the integer order is slightly good than the absolute error for the mentioned four-term solution by using the VHPM. As compared to VHPM, the LADM is simple and easy to use to handle various nonlinear partial differential equations.

#### 6. Conclusion

In our work, some existence results about the solution to the nonlinear problem of BBM equations under nonsingular kernel-type derivative have been developed successfully. We have discussed different cases of the concerned equations for semianalytical results. For approximate analytical results, a novel iterative method of Laplace transform coupled with Adomian polynomials has been used. Further, by providing an example, we have computed the absolute errors in comparison with VHPM for first four-term solutions at different values of variables and against . We observed that the absolute error is slightly good than the mentioned VHPM. Therefore, the concerned method of LADM can be used as a powerful tool to handle many nonlinear problems of FODEs. Since, the aforementioned equations are increasingly used to model numerous phenomena of physics including the propagation of heat or sound waves, fluid flow, elasticity, electrostatics, and electrodynamics, and population dynamics in biology. A large numbers of the aforementioned equations may be used in fluid mechanics and hydrodynamics. Since fractional derivatives have a greater degree of freedom and produce the complete spectrum of the physical phenomenon which include the ordinary derivative as particular case, global dynamics of the aforesaid physical phenomenon may be investigated. Since the BBM equation can also be used to model various physical systems like acoustic-gravity waves in compressible fluids, acoustic waves in enharmonic crystals, the hydromagnetic waves in cold plasma, (see [41]), investigation of the BBM equation and its various cases under different fractional order derivatives may be lead us to investigate some more comprehensive results by using various fractional orders which will include the classical order solution as a special case. The nonlocal behaviors of such problems can be well studied by using nonsingular fractional order derivative. In the future, the concerned BBM equation can be investigated by using more general fractional order derivative with nonsingular kernel of the Mittag-Leffler function.
