A review on some new recently developed nonlinear analytical techniques. (English) Zbl 0966.65056

Summary: This paper is a survey of some recent developments in nonlinear analytical techniques, which covers mainly the following 6 categories: 1) variational iteration method, 2) homotopy perturbation method, 3) linearized perturbation method, 4) parameterized perturbation method, 5) various modified Lindstedt-Poincaré methods, and 6) modified Adomian decomposition method. Each of those methods can be an effective procedure for analytical solutions of a wide class of both weakly and strongly nonlinear systems without small parameter assumption. Some of these new technologies have never appeared in any other literature. The emphasis is put upon the author’s recent work, and the references are not exhaustive.
