The differential transformation method and Padé approximant for a form of Blasius equation. (English) Zbl 1290.65069

Summary: Boundary conditions in an unbounded domain, i.e. boundary condition at infinity, pose a problem in general for the numerical solution methods. The aim of this study is to overcome this difficulty by using Padé approximation with the differential transform method (DTM) on a form of classical Blasius equation. The obtained results are compared with, for the first time, the ones obtained by using a modified form of Adomian decomposition method (ADM). Furthermore, in order to see the consistency of solutions, they are also compared with the ones obtained by using variational iteration method (VIM).
