Bookkeeping parameter in perturbation methods. (English) Zbl 1072.34508
Summary: In case of no small parameter in an equation, we can expand the solution in a series of an artificial parameter. The artificial parameter is a bookkeeping or crutching device and is set equal to one after the “perturbation solution” is obtained. In order to avoid secular terms arising in a straightforward expansion, the coefficients in the equation are also expanded into series of the artificial parameter. Some examples are given, and the results show that the obtained approximate solutions are uniformly valid on the whole solution domain.
