Second Order Numerical Integration w/ Neumann Boundary Conditions

  1. Aug 1, 2009 #1
    I hope this is the right place to post this question.

    I'm trying to figure out how to run a numeric integration for a nonlinear second order ODE with Neumann B.C.

    I've started programming up Runge Kutta 4, but clearly without a boundary condition on the function, but only on its derivative I'm stuck.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction, or refer me to a text that discusses this problem I'd really appreciate it.

    I can add more to this later. But for now check the Numerical Recipe website. www.nr.com Check in the section that has the older versions of the book in pdf format.
