Original Paper


The paper presents single-term Haar wavelet series (STHWS) approach to the solution of nonlinear stiff differential equations arising in nonlinear dynamics. The properties of STHWS are given. The method of implementation is discussed. Numerical solutions of some model equations are investigated for their stiffness and stability and solutions are obtained to demonstrate the suitability and applicability of the method. The results in the form of block-pulse and discrete solutions are given for typical nonlinear stiff systems. As compared with the TR BDF2 method of Shampine and Gill’s method, the STHWS turns out to be more effective in its ability to solve systems ranging from mildly to highly stiff equations and is free from stability constraints.
