### ON VARITIONAL ITERATION METHOD FOR FRACTIONAL CALCULUS

**ABSTRACT**

Modification of the Das' variational iteration method for fractional differential equations is discussed, and its main shortcoming involved in the solution process is pointed out and overcome by using fractional power series. The suggested computational procedure is simple and reliable for fractional calculus.
