In this paper, the perturbation method and Padé transformation are used to provide an approximate solution of elliptic integrals of the second kind and of complete integrals of the first kind. Besides, we used the obtained results to calculate an analytic expression for the period of a simple pendulum. The method has an acceptable accuracy for high values(More)
This article proposes Laplace Transform Homotopy Perturbation Method (LT-HPM) to find an approximate solution for the problem of an axisymmetric Newtonian fluid squeezed between two large parallel plates. After comparing figures between approximate and exact solutions, we will see that the proposed solutions besides of handy, are highly accurate and(More)
This article proposes non-linearities distribution Laplace transform-homotopy perturbation method (NDLT-HPM) to find approximate solutions for linear and nonlinear differential equations with finite boundary conditions. We will see that the method is particularly relevant in case of equations with nonhomogeneous non-polynomial terms. Comparing figures(More)
A new tool for the solution of nonlinear differential equations is presented. The Fixed-Term Homotopy (FTH) delivers a high precision representation of the nonlinear differential equation using only a few linear algebraic terms. In addition to this tool, a procedure based on Laplace-Padé to deal with the truncate power series resulting from the FTH method(More)
In this paper we study a generalization of the Johann Bernoulli's solution of the brachisto-crone problem. We will see that his method can be quickly extended in such a way that it can be used to solve other problems in a similar way using just elementary calculus methods. In addition, we will show that it is not necessary to know Euler's formalism for the(More)
ABSTRACT In this article, we propose the application of a modified Taylor series method (MTSM) for the approximation of nonlinear problems described on finite intervals. The issue of Taylor series method with mixed boundary conditions is circumvented using shooting constants and extra derivatives of the problem. In order to show the benefits of this(More)
In this article, Perturbation Method (PM) is employed to obtain a handy approximate solution to the steady state nonlinear reaction diffusion equation containing a nonlinear term related to Michaelis-Menten of the enzymatic reaction. Comparing graphics between the approximate and exact solutions, it will be shown that the PM method is quite efficient.
This article proposes the application of Laplace transform–homotopy perturbation method with variable coefficients, in order to find analytical approximate solutions for nonlinear differential equations with variable coefficients. As case study, we present the oxygen diffusion problem in a spherical cell including nonlinear Michaelis–Menten uptake kinetics.(More)
We present a homotopy continuation method (HCM) for finding multiple operating points of nonlinear circuits composed of devices modelled by using piecewise linear (PWL) representations. We propose an adaptation of the modified spheres path tracking algorithm to trace the homotopy trajectories of PWL circuits. In order to assess the benefits of this(More)
