Abstract

In this chapter, some analytic and semi-analytic techniques based on the homotopy analysis method (HAM) are briefly described, including the so-called “homotopy perturbation method”, the optimal homotopy asymptotic method, the spectral homotopy analysis method, the generalized boundary element method, and the generalized scaled boundary finite element method. The relationships between these methods with the HAM are also revealed.
