Shooting for Singular BVPs in ODEs
Project funded by Austrian Sience Foundation (FWF grant P12507-MAT) from November 1999 until October 2001.
Our aim was to prepare the theoretical basis for the design of a standard FORTRAN code (based on the shooting idea) for the numerical solution of singular boundary/initial value problems for systems of ODEs with a singularity of the first kind.
