Laguerre tau methods for solving higher-order ordinary differential equations. (English) Zbl 1024.65049

Summary: We present two numerical methods for solving higher-order differential equations using the Laguerre tau method. These methods generate linear systems, which can be solved by Gauss elimination with maximal partial pivoting strategy. Results of some numerical experiments and theoretical analysis are presented.
