Fractional partial differential equations (FPDEs) have become essential tool for the modeling of physical models by using spectral methods. In the last few decades, spectral methods have been developed for the solution of time and space dimensional FPDEs. There are different types of spectral methods such as collocation methods, Tau methods and Galerkin methods. This research work focuses on the collocation and Tau methods to propose an efficient operational matrix methods via Genocchi polynomials and Legendre polynomials for the solution of two and three dimensional FPDEs. Moreover, in this study, Genocchi wavelet-like basis method and Genocchi polynomials based Ritz- Galerkin method have been derived to deal with FPDEs and variable- order FPDEs. The reason behind using the Genocchi polynomials is that, it helps to generate functional expansions with less degree and small coefficients values to derive the operational matrix of derivative with less computational complexity as compared to Chebyshev and Legendre Polynomials. The results have been compared with the existing methods such as Chebyshev wavelets method, Legendre wavelets method, Adomian decomposition method, Variational iteration method, Finite difference method and Finite element method. The numerical results have revealed that the proposed methods have provided the better results as compared to existing methods due to minimum computational complexity of derived operational matrices via Genocchi polynomials. Additionally, the significance of the proposed methods has been verified by finding the error bound, which shows that the proposed methods have provided better approximation values for under consideration FPDEs.
