Tempered fractional diffusion equations (TFDEs) involving tempered fractional derivatives on the whole space were first introduced in Sabzikar et al. (J Comput Phys 293:14–28, 2015), but only the finite-difference approximation to a truncated problem on a finite interval was proposed therein. In this paper, we rigorously show the well-posedness of the models in Sabzikar et al. (2015), and tackle them directly in infinite domains by using generalized Laguerre functions (GLFs) as basis functions. We define a family of GLFs and derive some useful formulas of tempered fractional integrals/derivatives. Moreover, we establish the related GLF-approximation results. In addition, we provide ample numerical evidences to demonstrate the efficiency and “tempered” effect of the underlying solutions of TFDEs.
