Perfectly Matched Layers (PML) are proposed for time-dependent space fractional PDEs. Within this approach, widely used powerful Fourier solvers based on FFTs can be adapted without much effort to compute Initial Boundary Value Problems (IBVP) for well-posed fractional equations with absorbing boundary layers. We analyze mathematically the method and propose some illustrating numerical experiments.
