Tutorial on solving BVPs with BVP4C

Solving boundary value problems with BVP4C. Tutorial + Examples.

ex1bvp
function ex1bvp
%EX1BVP  Example 1 of the BVP tutorial.
%   This is the example for MUSN in U. Ascher, R. Mattheij, and R. Russell, 
%   Numerical Solution of Boundary Value Problems for Ordinary Differential 
%   Equations, SIAM, Philadelphia, PA, 1995.  MUSN is a multiple shooting 
%   code for nonlinear BVPs.  The problem is
%   
%      u' =  0.5*u*(w - u)/v
%      v' = -0.5*(w - u)
%      w' = (0.9 - 1000*(w - y) - 0.5*w*(w - u))/z
%      z' =  0.5*(w - u)
%      y' = -100*(y - w)
%   
%   The interval is [0 1] and the boundary conditions are
%   
%      u(0) = v(0) = w(0) = 1,  z(0) = -10,  w(1) = y(1)
%   
%   The example uses a guess for the solution coded here in EX1INIT.  
%   The results of a run of the FORTRAN code MUSN are here compared to
%   the curves produced by BVP4C.

solinit = bvpinit(linspace(0,1,5),@ex1init);
options = bvpset('Stats','on','RelTol',1e-5);

sol = bvp4c(@ex1ode,@ex1bc,solinit,options);

% The solution at the mesh points
x = sol.x;
y = sol.y;
