Özet

In this paper a novel approach is presented for an analytic approximate solution of nonlinear differential equations with boundary conditions. By converting the nonlinear problem into an initial value form, a shooting-like procedure is introduced based on the powerful homotopy analysis technique. The proposed methodology is shown to work adequately for solving single or multiple solutions of some sample nonlinear boundary value problems. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
