A new analytic method is applied to singular initial-value Lane-Emden-type problems, and the effectiveness and performance of the method is studied. The proposed method obtains a Taylor expansion of the solution, and when the solution is polynomial, our method reproduces the exact solution. It is observed that the method is easy to implement, valuable for handling singular phenomena, yields excellent results at a minimum computational cost, and requires less time. Computational results of several test problems are presented to demonstrate the viability and practical usefulness of the method. The results reveal that the method is very effective, straightforward, and simple.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
