Solution of fifth order boundary value problems by using local polynomial regression. (English) Zbl 1118.65347

Summary: We present a novel method based on the local polynomial regression for solving of fifth order boundary value problems. The method is tested on numerical example to demonstrate its usefulness. The method presented in this paper is also compared with those developed by S. S. Siddiqi and G. Akram [ibid. 175, No. 2, 1575–1581 (2006; Zbl 1094.65072)], as well and is observed to be better.
