Variational iteration method for solving two-point boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 1119.65068

Summary: The variational iteration method is introduced to solve two-point boundary value problems. Numerical results demonstrate that the method is promising and may overcome the difficulty arising in the Adomian decomposition method.
