Dear Mathematica experts! :-)
At the moment I'm dealing with the following nonlinear
integro-differential equation arising from a quantum
y''[x] + 2 y'[x]/x + 2 y[x] = A (1 + B/x) y[x] f[x]
f'[x] = x^2 y[x] .
If the right sight of the equation is small, e.g., A = 0,
then the solution (linearized theory) is
y[x] = (C1 Sin[Sqrt x] + C2 Cos[Sqrt x])/x .
However, the problem is that in my case is A=1E-36, B=7.3E-3,
and y = 1E26 (!) and therefore the nonlinear term is not
In this conjunction I have the following two questions:
1. Three boundary conditions are necessary.
It is easy to introduce y = 1E26 and y' = 0 as
boundary conditions in NDSolve but how can I use the
additional condition f[Infinity] = A?
2. It seems that the large y-value cause some serious
numerical problems. Has anyone some tips, links, etc.
how to the rid of these problems?
