Solving boundary value problem (BVP)

Solving boundary value problem (BVP)

Solving boundary value problem (BVP)


First of all, thanks for any help.

I'm trying to solve a boundary value problem in Mathcad 14 by using ODEsolve function, but I have a problem. One of the two boundary conditions is of the form y(a)= constant. However, ODEsolve does not converge for some values of this constant, although I know the solution exists because this ODE has an analytical solution.

After my frustrated tentative, I try to solve by sbval function which the BVP becomes an IVP, but it doesn't work either.

I'm gonna send the file which has my solution. I appreciate any help.

Thank you. I'm following your advice.
