Bernoulli Collocation Polynomials Algorithm for Calculus of Variational Problems

Mohammed Abdelhadi Sarhan


This paper presents an approximate method that depends on the Bernoulli Polynomials as basic functions. The method is concerned with collocation technique for solving problems in calculus of variation. Some interesting properties of Bernoulli polynomials are used to reduce the original problem to mathematical problem. Some illustrative examples are described to show the applicability of the proposed method.
