Generalized variation iteration solution of an atmosphere-ocean oscillator model for global climate. (English) Zbl 1226.49035

Summary: A box model of the interhemispheric thermohaline circulation in atmosphere-ocean for global climate is considered. By using the generalized variational iteration method, the approximate solution of a simplified nonlinear model is studied. The generalized variational iteration method is an analytic method, and the obtained analytic solution can be operated sequentially. The authors also diversify qualitative and quantitative behaviors for corresponding physical quantities.
