Adaptive multi-step differential transformation method to solve ODE systems



In this paper, it is given a fast algorithm to solve chaotic differential systems using the multi-step differential transforms method (MsDTM). The approach is applied to a number of chaotic nonlinear differential equations and numerical results are given. Performance analyses reveal that the proposed approach is an efficiency tool to solve using fewer time step to the considered equation systems.
