A Numerical Method for Singular Boundary-Value Problems


This note is concerned with an iterative method for the solution of singular boundary value problems. It can be considered as a predictor-corrector method. Sufficient conditions for the convergence of the method are introduced. A number of numerical examples are used to study the applicability of the method.
