Description

In the present notebook, the author has found a new way to solve split boundary value problems using the shooting technique. The new approach is based on NDSolve`StateData and is more than two times faster than the previous approach based on the work of Professor Brian Higgins, U C Davis. The two approaches are successfully applied to solve the Blasius problem.
