I have an overdetermined nonlinear system of ODEs:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

W' = f(c)

c'' = f(W,W',c)

and boundary conditions

W(0)=a,W(L)=-a

c(0)=c(L)-b

I can split up the equations into three first order ODEs, and solve numerically with Matlab. I would like to use bvp4c, but I believe I have too many boundary conditions. Is this correct? If so, what alternative approach should I take to finding a solution. And if not, what am I doing wrong? I have already implemented the shooting method which is very sensitive on ICs for convergence, so looking for alternative method.
