Solving boundary value problems with BVP4C. Tutorial + Examples.

function ex7bvp
%EX7BVP  Example 7 of the BVP tutorial.
%   This is the first example problem for D02HBF from the NAG library.  
%   The problem is y'' = (y^3 - y')/(2x), y(0) = 0.1, y(16) = 1/6.  The
%   singularity at the origin is handled by using a series to represent 
%   the solution and its derivative at a "small" distance d > 0, namely
%   
%      y(d)  = 0.1 + y'(0)*sqrt(d)/10 + d/100 
%      y'(d) = y'(0)/(20*sqrt(d)) + 1/100
%   
%   The value y'(0) is treated as an unknown parameter p. The problem is
%   solved numerically on [d, 16].  Two boundary conditions are that the
%   computed solution and its first derivative agree with the values from
%   the series at d.  The remaining boundary condition is y(16) = 1/6.
%   
%   The results from the documentation for D02HBF are here compared to 
%   curves produced by bvp4c.
