Extended cubic uniform B-spline for a class of singular boundary value problems
Joan Goh*, Ahmad Abd. Majid, Ahmad Izani Md. Ismail
ABSTRACT: B-splines have been widely used to approximate solutions to differential equations. In this paper, a class of singular boundary value problems are treated by using extended cubic uniform B-spline approximations. The advantage of using an extended cubic B-spline rather the ordinary B-spline is that it introduces one additional free parameter. For a number of examples where exact solutions are known, the solutions obtained using the extended B-splines are found to be better approximations than those obtained using ordinary B-splines.
