A new spectral-homotopy analysis method for solving a nonlinear second order BVP. (English) Zbl 1222.65090
Summary: A modification of the homotopy analysis method (HAM) for solving nonlinear second-order boundary value problems (BVPs) is proposed. The implementation of the new approach is demonstrated by solving the Darcy–Brinkman–Forchheimer equation for steady fully developed fluid flow in a horizontal channel filled with a porous medium. The model equation is solved concurrently using the standard HAM approach and numerically using a shooting method based on the fourth order Runge–Kutta scheme. The results demonstrate that the new spectral homotopy analysis method is more efficient and converges faster than the standard homotopy analysis method.
