A Collocation Method for Numerical Solution of the Generalized Burgers-Huxley Equation

Mohammad ZAREBNIA, Nastaran ALINIYA


In this paper, we use a collocation method to solve the Burgers-Huxley equation. To achieve this aim, we use mesh free technique based on sinc functions. The stability analysis is discussed. Some numerical examples are provided to illustrate the accuracy and fluency of the method.
