Five-point boundary value problems for $n$-th order differential equations by solution matching

Johnny Henderson, John Ehrke and Curtis Kunkel

Vol. 1 (2008), No. 1, 1–7
Abstract

For the ordinary differential equation

y(n) = f(x,y,y,y,,y(n1)),n 3,

solutions of three-point boundary value problems on [a,b] are matched with solutions of three-point boundary value problems on [b,c] to obtain solutions satisfying five-point boundary conditions on [a,c].

Keywords
boundary value problem, ordinary differential equation, solution matching
