This paper is concerned with the application of a hybrid collocation method to a class of initial value problems for differential equations of fractional order. First, the fractional differential equation is converted to a nonlinear Volterra integral equation with a weakly singular kernel. Then, the Volterra integral equation is converted to a fixed point problem. A hybrid collocation algorithm is developed to solve the fixed point problem, and the optimal order of convergence of the proposed algorithm is obtained. Two numerical experiments are conducted to demonstrate the efficiency of the hybrid collocation algorithm.
