A comparison of Adomian decomposition method and RK4 algorithm on Volterra integro differential equations of 2nd kind
Keywords:Volterra Integro differential equations, Adomian decomposition method, Adomian polynomial, Runge-Kutta4, Absolute error.
AbstractIn this paper, Volterra Integro differential equations are solved using the Adomian decomposition method. The solutions are obtained in form of infinite series and compared to Runge-Kutta4 algorithm. The technique is described and illustrated with examples; numerical results are also presented graphically. The software used in this study is mathematica10.
