Numerical Algorithms for Solving a Type of Nonlinear Integro-Differential Equations

Authors: Shishen Xie


In this article two algorithms, one based on variation iteration method and the other on Adomian's decomposition method, are developed to find the numerical solution of an initial value problem involving the non linear integro differantial equation where R is a nonlinear operator that contains partial derivatives with respect to x. Special cases of the integro-differential equation are solved using the algorithms. The numerical solutions are compared with analytical solutions. The results show that these two methods are efficient and accurate with only two or three iterations

Keywords: decomposition method, variation iteration method, nonlinear integro-differential equations
