a) Show how the expansion x(󰂃) = 1 + 󰂃x1 + 󰂃2 x2 + &middot; &middot; &middot; will fail when applied to
(1 − 󰂃)x2 − 2x + 1 = 0,
󰂃 ≪ 1.
Then suggest the correct expansion.
b) Consider the following nonlinear system of two-point boundary-value problem:
f ′′ − θ′ = 0,
λ+1 ′
θ′′ +
f θ − λf ′ θ = 0,

(1)
(2)
with boundary conditions
f (0) = fw ,
θ(0) = 1,
f ′ (∞) = 0,
θ(∞) = 0,
(3)
(4)
where the primes denote diﬀerentiation with respect to η and both fw and λ
are constants.
First reduce (1)–(4) to a problem in terms of f only. Then obtain the Adomian
recursive (analytical) algorithm.

a) Give two example problems which can be solved by the method of calculus of
variations.
b) Derive the Euler diﬀerential equation corresponding to
I=
󰁝
x1
x0
F (x, y1 , y2 , . . . , yn , y1′ , y2′ , . . . , yn′ ) dx,
where the continuously diﬀerentiable functions yi (x) (i = 1, . . . , n) and their
derivatives are prescribed at x = x0 and x = x1 .
