A simple efficient method for solving sixth-order nonlinear boundary value problems
In this paper, we propose a simple efficient method for a sixth-order nonlinear boundary value problem. It is based on the reduction of the problem to an operator equation for the right-hand-side function. The existence and uniqueness of a solution and its positivity are established. An iterative method for finding the solution is investigated. A numerical realization of the iterative method with the use of a difference scheme of sixth-order accuracy shows the efficiency and advantages of the proposed method over some other methods.
