The solution of multipoint boundary value problems by the optimal homotopy asymptotic method. (English) Zbl 1189.65154
Summary: We solve multipoint boundary value problems using the Optimal Homotopy Asymptotic Method (OHAM).The proposed method is tested upon several problems from the literature and the results are compared with the available exact solution. This method provides easy tools to control the convergence region of approximating solution series where ever necessary.
