A numerical method for boundary value problems for singularly perturbed fourth-order ordinary differential equations. (English) Zbl 1025.65044

Authors’ abstract: “Singularly perturbed two-point boundary value problems (BVPs) for fourth-order ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with a small positive parameter multiplying the highest derivative are considered. A numerical method is suggested to solve such problems. In this method, the given BVP is transformed into a system of two ODEs subject to suitable boundary conditions. Then the domain of definition of the differential equation (a closed interval) is divided into three non-overlapping sub-intervals, which we call them inner regions (boundary layers) and outer region. Then the DE is solved in these intervals separately. The solutions obtained in these regions are combined to give a solution in the entire interval. To obtain terminal boundary conditions (boundary values inside this interval) we use mostly zero-order asymptotic expansion of the solution of the BVP. First, linear equations are considered and then nonlinear equations. To solve nonlinear equations, Newton’s method of quasi-linearization is applied. The present method is demonstrated by providing examples. The method is easy to implement and suitable for parallel computing”.

The method solves equations of the following form:

-εy (iv) (x)+b(x)y '' (x)-c(x)y(x)=-f(x),xD,
y(0)=p,y(1)=q,y '' (0)=-r,y '' (1)=-s,

where ε is a small positive parameter and b(x), c(x) and f(x) are sufficiently smooth functions satisfying the following conditions:

b(x)β>0,
0c(x)-γ,γ>0,
β-2γη>0forsomeη,
D=(0,1),D ¯=[0,1],yC 4 (D)C 2 (D ¯)·

The sign of the function f and the constants p, q, r and s does not seem to be arbitrary, because of the presence of the minus sign in the equations, but the authors do not clarify this point in the Introduction.
