In 1992, Liao [1] employed the basic ideas of the homotopy in topology to propose a general analytic method for linear and nonlinear problems, namely Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) [2-4]. Based on homotopy of topology, the validity of the HAM is independent of whether or not there exist small prameters in the considered equation. Therefore, the HAM can overcome the foregoing restrictions and limitations of perturbation techniques. This method has been successfully applied to solve many types of… CONTINUE READING
