Abstract

In this paper a robust and accurate algorithm based on Haar wavelet collocation method (HWCM) is proposed for solving eighth order boundary value problems. We used the Haar direct method for calculating multiple integrals of Haar functions. To illustrate the efficiency and accuracy of the concerned method, few examples are considered which arise in the mathematical modeling of fluid dynamics and hydromagnetic stability. Convergence and error bound estimation of the method are discussed. The comparison of results with exact solution and existing numerical methods such as Quintic B-spline collocation method and Galerkin method with Quintic B-splines as basis functions shown that the HWCM is a powerful numerical method for solution of above mentioned problems.
