A note on some numerical approaches to solve a \(\dot{\theta}\) neuron networks model. (English) Zbl 1474.65490

Summary: Space time integration plays an important role in analyzing scientific and engineering models. In this paper, we consider an integrodifferential equation that comes from modeling \(\dot{\theta}\) neuron networks. Here, we investigate various schemes for time discretization of a theta-neuron model. We use collocation and midpoint quadrature formula for space integration and then apply various time integration schemes to get a full discrete system. We present some computational results to demonstrate the schemes.
