In this work we are concerned with the numerical approximation of terminal (or boundary) value problems for fractional differential equations. The approach used is based on the equivalence between this kind of problem and a Fredholm integral equation. Taking into account the potential non-smoothness of the solution of such problems at the origin, we propose a non-polynomial collocation method on a uniform mesh. Some numerical results are presented and we discuss briefly the convergence of the method.
