Bezier Polynomials with Applications

Nazrul Islam, Md. Shafiqul Islam

Abstract


In this paper, we use the Galerkin technique for solving higher order linear and nonlinear boundary value problems (BVPs). The well-known Bezier polynomials are exploited as basis functions in the technique. To use the Bezier polynomials, we need to satisfy the corresponding homogeneous form of the boundary conditions and modification is thus needed. A rigorous matrix formulation is developed by the Galerkin method for linear and nonlinear systems and solved it using Bezier polynomials. The approximate solutions are compared to the exact solutions through tabular form. All problems are computed using the software MATHEMATICA.

Keywords


Galerkin method, linear and nonlinear BVPs, Bezier polynomials.
