In this paper, a mixed matrix transform method with fractional centered difference scheme for solving fractional diffusion equation with Riesz fractional derivative was examined. It was obtained that the numerical scheme was unconditionally stable and feasible using the matrix analysis method. Numerical experiments were, then, carried out to support the theoretical predictions.
