DOI: 10.28978/nesciences.349267


This paper investigates the Haar wavelet collocation method (HWCM) to obtain approximate solution of the linear Emden-Fowler type equations. To show the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed method, some problems are solved and the obtained solutions are compared with the approximate solutions obtained by using the other numerical methods as well as the exact solutions of the problems.
