A collocation method based on Bernoulli operational matrix for numerical solution of generalized pantograph equation. (English) Zbl 1273.34082
Summary: This paper presents a direct solution technique for solving the generalized pantograph equation with variable coefficients subject to initial conditions, using a collocation method based on Bernoulli operational matrix of derivatives. Only a small dimension of the Bernoulli operational matrix is needed to obtain a satisfactory result. Numerical results with comparisons are given to confirm the reliability of the proposed method for the generalized pantograph equation.
