Numerical simulation of the generalized Huxley equation by He’s variational iteration method. (English) Zbl 1118.65367

Summary: By means of the variational iteration method the solution of a generalized Huxley equation is obtained, a comparison with the Adomian decomposition method is made, showing that the former is more effective than the later. J.-H. He’s variational iteration method [Int. J. Non-Linear Mech. 34, No. 4, 699–708 (1999; Zbl 1342.34005)] is introduced to overcome the difficulty arising in calculating Adomian polynomials.
