A numerical solution to nonlinear multi-point boundary value problems in the reproducing kernel space. (English) Zbl 1206.65187

Summary: A new numerical algorithm is provided to solve nonlinear multi-point boundary value problems in a very favorable reproducing kernel space, which satisfies all complex boundary conditions. Its reproducing kernel function is discussed in detail. The theorem proves that the approximate solution and its first- and second-order derivatives all converge uniformly. The numerical experiments show that the algorithm is quite accurate and efficient for solving nonlinear multi-point boundary value problems.
