Now let us put together a Haar wavelet solution with the variable stepsize. We shall assume that the lengths of the subintervals fulfill the condition Δxl = qΔxl−1 , where q < 1 and l = 1, . . , 2M. By summing up all the lengths of the subintervals we obtain Δx1 (1 + q + q 2 + · · · + q 2M−1 ) = 1. 46) Since the sum of this geometric series is 1 + q + q 2 + · · · + q 2M−1 = we obtain Δx1 = 1 − q 2M 1−q 1−q . 48) The grid points are x˜l = 1 − ql , l = 0, 1, . . , 2M. 9). 41). We have to satisfy the boundary condition y(1) = 0.
001 the solution for q = 1 remains unstable in spite of the increasing number of collocation points. 5 Nonlinear Equations The n-th order nonlinear ODE has the form F(x, y, y ≥ , y ≥≥ , . . 54) 34 3 Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) where F is a nonlinear function. 55) i=1 and integrate this equation n-times. 54). By doing this we get a system of nonlinear equations φl (a1 , a2 , . . , a2M ) = 0, l = 1, 2, . . 56) from which the wavelet coefficients ai can be calculated. 56) the Newton method is applied.
2 /H, c˜ = −b. For correcting these values two Newton steps were needed. 626e − 5. 3]. In this phase the functions y1 , y3 decrease very slowly, therefore we take y˜1 = y1 (δ)E, y˜2 = y2 (δ)E. 20) we find y˜3 = y3 (δ)E + 3 · 107 y2 (δ)2 x. 138e − 4. 129e − 4. These data are in good accordance with our results. It is interesting to note that in the second phase, only the first of the wavelet coefficients is significant. 0006, . . 0092, . . 0006, . . All other coefficients are considerably smaller.
