Abstract

omotopy analysis method (HAM) is a promising method for handling func- tional equations. Recent publications proved the eectiveness of HAM in solving wide variety of problems in dierent elds. HAM has a unique property which makes it superior to other analytic methods, this property is its ability to con- trol the convergence region of the solution series. In this work, we claried the advantages and eects of convergence-control parameter through an example.
