Approximate solutions to boundary value problems of higher order by the modified decomposition method. (English) Zbl 0959.65090
The author studies boundary value problems such as the following $f^{(2m)}(x)= f(x,y),\quad 0\prec x\prec 1$ with boundary conditions $y^{(2j)}(0)= \alpha_{2j},\quad y^{(2j)}(1)= \beta_{2j},\quad j= 0,1,\dots,(m- 1).$ The solution is found by using the decomposition method of Adomian searching $$y(x)$$ as a series $$\sum^\infty_{n=0} y_n(x)$$ and decomposing the nonlinear function by an infinite series of (Adomian) polynomials: $f(x, y)= \sum^\infty_{n=0} A_n.$ Numerical examples are treated and they prove the high accuracy of the Adomian method.
