Analytical Algorithm for Systems of Neutral Delay Differential Equations
Abstract: Delay differential equations (DDEs), as well as neutral delay differential equations (NDDEs), are often used as a fundamental tool to model problems arising from various areas of sciences and engineering. However, NDDEs particularly the systems of these equations are special transcendental in nature; it has therefore, become a challenging task or times almost impossible to obtain a convergent approximate analytical solution of such equation. Therefore, this study introduced an analytical method to obtain solution of linear and nonlinear systems of NDDEs. The proposed technique is a combination of Homotopy analysis method (HAM) and natural transform method, and the He’s polynomial is modified to compute the series of nonlinear terms. The presented technique gives solution in a series form which converges to the exact solution or approximate solution. The convergence analysis and the maximum estimated error of the approach are also given. Some illustrative examples are given, and comparison for the accuracy of the results obtained is made with the existing ones as well as the exact solutions. The results reveal the reliability and efficiency of the method in solving systems of NDDEs and can also be used in various types of linear and nonlinear problems.
