In this paper, Sumudu decomposition method is developed to solve general form of fractional partial differential equation. The proposed method is based on the application of Sumudu transform to nonlinear fractional partial differential equations. The nonlinear term can easily be handled with the help of Adomian polynomials. The fractional derivatives are described in the Caputo sense. The Sumudu method is found to be fast and accurate. Illustrative examples are given to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the proposed technique.
