The application of homotopy analysis method to solve nonlinear differential equation governing Jeffery-Hamel flow. (English) Zbl 1221.76056
Summary: The Jeffery--Hamel flow is studied and its nonlinear ordinary differential equation is solved through the homotopy analysis method (HAM). The obtained solution in comparison with the numerical ones represents a remarkable accuracy. The results also indicate that HAM can provide us with a convenient way to control and adjust the convergence region.
