We will consider He's variational iteration method for solving fractional
Riccati differential equation. This method is based on the use of Lagrange multipliers for
identification of optimal value of a parameter in a functional. This technique provides a
sequence of functions which converges to the exact solution of the problem. The present
method performs extremely well in terms of efficiency and simplicity.
