In this study, we explore fractional partial differential equations as a more generalized version of classical partial differential equations. These fractional equations have shown promise in providing improved descriptions of certain phenomena under specific circumstances. The main focus of this paper comprises the development, analysis, and application of two explicit finite difference schemes to solve an initial boundary value problem involving a fuzzy time fractional convection–diffusion equation with a fractional order in the range of 0≤ ξ ≤ 1. The uniqueness of this problem lies in its consideration of fuzziness within both the initial and boundary conditions. To handle the uncertainty, we propose a computational mechanism based on the double parametric form of fuzzy numbers, effectively converting the problem from an uncertain format to a crisp one. To assess the stability of our proposed schemes, we employ the von Neumann method and find that they demonstrate unconditional stability. To illustrate the feasibility and practicality of our approach, we apply the developed scheme to a specific example.
