Chebyshev Polynomial Solutions of Certain Second Order Non-Linear Differential Equations
The purpose of this study is to give a Chebyshev polynomial approximation for the solution of second-order non-linear differential equations with variable coefficients. For this purpose, Chebyshev matrix method is introduced. This method is based on taking the truncated Chebyshev expansions of the functions in the non-linear differential equations. Hence, the result matrix equation can be solved and the unknown Chebyshev coefficients can be found approximately. Additionally, the mentioned method is illustrated by two examples.
