Galerkin-wavelet methods for two-point boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 0771.65050

Both the definition, basic properties and approximation properties of wavelets are described. The Galerkin method is applied to the numerical solution of the two-point boundary value problem \(-(q(x)u')'+r(x)u=f(x)\) for \(x\in (0,R)\) with Dirichlet (or mixed, or Neumann) condition, where the bases of a finite dimension solution subspace are formed by means of wavelet functions. Numerical examples are given.
