## Abstract

In this paper, a new operational matrix of integration is derived using Genocchi polynomials, which is one of the Appell polynomials. By using the matrix, we develop an efficient, direct and new numerical method for solving a class of fractional optimal control problems. The fractional derivative in the dynamic constraints was replaced with the Genocchi polynomials with unknown coefficients and a Genocchi operational matrix of fractional integration. Then, the equation derived from the dynamic constraints was put into the performance index. Hence, the fractional optimal control problems will be reduced to fractional variational problems. By finding a necessary condition for the optimality for the performance index, we will obtain a system of algebraic equations that can be easily solved by using any numerical method. Hence, we obtain the value of unknown coefficients of Genocchi polynomials. Lastly, the solution of the fractional optimal control problems will be obtained. In short, the properties of Genocchi polynomials are utilized to reduce the given problems to a system of algebraic equations. The approximation approach is simple to use and computer oriented. Illustrative examples are given to show the simplicity, accuracy and applicability of the method.
