We provide a numerical algorithm for the model characterizing anomalous diffusion in expanding media, which is derived in Le Vot et al. [Phys. Rev. E 96 (2017) 032117]. The Sobolev regularity for the equation with variable coefficient is first established. Then we use the finite element method to discretize the Laplace operator and present error estimate of the spatial semi-discrete scheme based on the regularity of the solution; the backward Euler convolution quadrature is developed to approximate Riemann–Liouville fractional derivative and the error estimates for the fully discrete scheme are established by using the continuity of solution. Finally, the numerical experiments verify the effectiveness of the algorithm.
