Prof. Anand Pillai of Mississippi State asked the question: How can I solve two-point boundary value ordinary differential equations using Mathematica? What function should I use? Any comprehensive tutorial sites on the Net? I couldn't find any. A complete set of Mathematica Algorithms to accompany the textbook Numerical Methods: for Mathematics and Engineering is available at: http://www.wri.com/MathSource/Publications/ BookSupplements/Mathews-1996/0207-874 The algorithms that solve the two-point boundary value ordinarydifferential equations using Mathematica Algorithm 9.9.
