Abstract

The collocation method based on the exponential cubic B-splines (ECB-splines) together with the Crank Nicolson formula is used to solve nonlinear coupled Burgers’ equation (CBE). This method is tested by studying three different problems. The proposed scheme is compared with some existing methods. It produced accurate results with the suitable selection of the free parameter of the ECB-spline function. It produces accurate results. Stability of the fully discretized CBE is investigated by the Von Neumann analysis.
