The purpose of this paper is to discuss the application of the Haar wavelets for solving linear and nonlinear Fokker-Planck equations with appropriate initial and boundary conditions.
Haar wavelet approach converts the problems into a system of linear algebraic equations and the obtained system is solved by Gauss-elimination method.
The accuracy of the proposed scheme is demonstrated on three test examples. The numerical solutions prove that the proposed method is reliable and yields compatible results with the exact solutions. The scheme provides better results than the schemes [9, 14].
The developed scheme is a new scheme for Fokker-Planck equations. The scheme based on Haar wavelets is expended for nonlinear partial differential equations with variable coefficients.
