Derivation of Block Methods for Solving Second Order Ordinary Differential Equations Directly using Direct Integration and Collocation Approaches


This paper presents two block methods for solving second order ordinary differential equations directly. These two methods are capable of computing the numerical solutions at several points simultaneously. In deriving these methods, two techniques are employed namely direct integration and collocation approach. The advantages and drawbacks of each method are also discussed.
