Title: C^1-approximate solutions of second-order singular ordinary
differential equations
Author: George L. Karakostas (Univ. of Ioannina, Greece)
Abstract:
In this work a new method is developed to obtain C^1-approximate
solutions of initial and boundary-value problems generated from a
one - parameter second order singular ordinary differential equation.
Information about the order of approximation is also given by
introducing the so called growth index of a function.
Conditions are given for the existence of such approximations
for initial and boundary-value problems of several kinds.
Examples associated with the corresponding graphs of the
approximate solutions, for some values of the parameter,
are also given.
