A Modified Adams Predictor-Corrector Method for Differential Equations with Highly Oscillating Solutions

  • Published : 1998.12.31


An algorithm for a solution of ordinary differential equations using a modified corrector in the Adams predictor-corrector method of order four is described. The Lagrange interpolation used in the corrector of the Adams method is replaced partially by the cubic spline interpolation satisfying the first derivative constraints at the two end points. By exhibiting three examples, we show that the proposed method is more effcient when the solution of a differential equation is highly oscillating.
