Variational approach to the sixth-order boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 1025.65043

Summary: Recently, A.-M. Wazwaz [Appl. Math. Comput. 118, 311-325 (2001; Zbl 1023.65074)] applied the Adomian’s decomposition method to solve analytically the solution of sixth-order boundary value problems. The same problem is discussed via the variational principle, which reveals to be much more simpler and much more efficient.
