An efficient computational method for second order boundary value problems of nonlinear differential equations. (English) Zbl 1193.65134

Summary: We will discuss a class of boundary value problems (BVPs) of nonlinear differential equations in the reproducing kernel space. The existence of the solution and a iterative method are established for the kind of problems. Some examples are displayed to demonstrate the computation efficiency of the method.
