Abstract:

Several eigenvalue problems for systems of ordinary differential equations are considered. They are resolved computationally using the quasilinearization technique, a quadratically convergent successive approximation scheme. The essential idea presented is to consider an eigenvalue problem to be a system identification problem. Also shown is the use of invariant imbedding techniques to obtain good initial estimates for eigenvalues in some neutron multiplication processes. Author
