The Decomposition Method for Ordinary Differential Equations

  • George Adomian
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 60)


A critically important problem in frontier science and technology is the physically correct solution of nonlinear and/or stochastic systems modelled by differential or partial differential equations for general initial/boundary conditions.
