Nonlinear homotopy in geodesy
MetadataShow full item record
In Paláncz et al. (J Geod 84: 79–85, 2009), linear homotopy was introduced and its applications to geodesy presented. Never before had the concept of nonlinear homotopy been used by the geodetic community. This is partly attributed to the complexity of the involved equations and partly due to the computational time required. Recently, however, Nor et al. (MATEMATIKA 29: 159–171, 2013) suggested the possibility of constructing nonlinear homotopy. In this short note, Nor et al. (MATEMATIKA 29: 159–171, 2013) idea is developed for geodetic applications and an example of its use illustrated.

Assessment of homotopy analysis method and homotopy perturbation method in non-linear heat transfer equationDomairry, G.; Nadim, Nima (2008)Two new analytical methods to solve nonlinear heat transfer equations are homotopy perturbation method and homotopy analysis method. Here, homotopy analysis method, which gives us a vast freedom to choose the answer type, ...

Palancz, B.; Awange, Joseph; Zaletnyik, P.; Lewis, R. (2010)A fundamental task in geodesy is solving systems of equations. Many geodetic problems are represented as systems of multivariate polynomials. A common problem in solving such systems is improper initial starting values ...
