Numerical solution of telegraph equation using interpolating scaling functions. (English) Zbl 1205.65288

Summary: A numerical technique is presented for the solution of second order one dimensional linear hyperbolic equation. This method uses interpolating scaling functions. The method consists of expanding the required approximate solution as the elements of interpolating scaling functions. Using the operational matrix of derivatives, we reduce the problem to a set of algebraic equations. Some numerical examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique. The method is easy to implement and produces accurate results.
