Application of Orthogonal Expansions for Approximate Integration of Ordinary Differential Equations / Arushanyan O.B., Volchenskova N.I., Zaletkin S.F. // Vestnik Moskovskogo Universiteta. Seriya 1.

An approximate method to solve the Cauchy problem for normal and canonical systems of second-order ordinary differential equations is proposed. The method is based on the representation of a solution and its derivative at each integration step in the form of partial sums of series in shifted Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind. A Markov quadrature formula is used to derive the equations for the approximate values of Chebyshev coefficients in the right-hand sides of systems. Some sufficient convergence conditions are obtained for the iterative method solving these equations. Several error estimates for the approximate Chebyshev coefficients and for the solution are given with respect to the integration step size.

Key words: ordinary differential equations, approximate analytical methods of integration, numerical methods of integration, orthogonal expansions, shifted Chebyshev polynomials, Markov quadrature formulas.
