Initial Value Solvers for Direct Solution of Fourth Order Ordinary Differential Equations in A Block from Using Chebyshev Polynomial as Basis Function (Published)

The numerical computation of fourth order ordinary differential equations cannot be gloss over easily due to its significant and importance. There have been glowing needs to find an appropriate numerical method that will handle effectively fourth order ordinary differential equations without resolving such an equation to a system of first order ordinary differential equations. To this end, this presentation focuses on direct numerical computation to fourth order ordinary differential equations without resolving such equations to a system of first order ordinary differential equations. The method is not predictor – corrector one due to its limitation in the level of accuracy. The method is order wise christened “Block Method” which is a self starting method. In order to achieve this objective, Chebyshev polynomial is hereby used as basis function.
