Abstract:

An effective, efficient method is given, exploiting the techniques of invariant imbedding and quasilinearization, for numerically solving quasilinear first-order partial differential equations. It is known that certain nonlinear two-point boundary-value problems can be converted into initial-value problems for a related quasilinear first-order partial differential equation. It is observed, conversely, that the treatment of the partial differential equation can be reduced to solving the two-point boundary-value problem by using quasilinearization. Use of standard finite difference methods to predict, and quasilinearization to correct, can yield precision solutions for the partial differential equation. Author
