Near-field and far-field approximations by the Adomian and asymptotic decomposition methods. (English) Zbl 1209.65071

Summary: The Adomian decomposition method and the asymptotic decomposition method give the near-field approximate solution and far-field approximate solution, respectively, for linear and nonlinear differential equations. The Padé approximants give solution continuation of series solutions, but the continuation is usually effective only on some finite domain, and it can not always give the asymptotic behavior as the independent variables approach infinity.
We investigate the global approximate solution by matching the near-field approximation derived from the Adomian decomposition method with the far-field approximation derived from the asymptotic decomposition method for linear and nonlinear differential equations. For several examples we find that there exists an overlap between the near-field approximation and the far-field approximation, so we can match them to obtain a global approximate solution.
For other nonlinear examples where the series solution from the Adomian decomposition method has a finite convergent domain, we can match the Padé approximant of the near-field approximation with the far-field approximation to obtain a global approximate solution representing the true, entire solution over an infinite domain.
