RWPM: A software package of shooting methods for nonlinear two-point boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 0785.65089
This paper deals with the numerical software package RWPM which solves the two-point boundary value problem for a system of \(n\) nonlinear ordinary differential equations \(x' = f(t,x)\), \(a < t < b\), subject to \(n\) nonlinear boundary conditions \(r(x(a),x(b)) = 0\), which has an isolated solution and, for convenience, \(f\) and \(r\) are as smooth as desired.
The authors describe the actual version of the package RWPM. The code is implemented in Microsoft FORTRAN 5.0 and can be run on a PC. The computation process is graphically depicted. Numerical examples demonstrating the efficiency of the package are presented.
