### Obtaining extra output argument(s) from the objective function used by fsolve in MATLAB

I have a MATLAB code (see below) that employs 'fsolve' from the optimization toolbox for a root finding problem. The bottleneck is that, within the objective function calculation, there is a ...

### How to find order of convergence in finite element method computationally when exact solution is unknown for time dependent problem

Say for heat equation or Burgers equation with nonlinear boundary condition. Exact solution is unknown. So I am taking for small mesh size the discrete solution as exact solution. Then how to write ...

### Solving coupled PDE in COMSOL [closed]

I have the system of equations \begin{align} &A \frac{\partial u_1}{\partial t} = 1 - u_1 B \frac{\partial u_2}{\partial y}\\ &\frac{\partial u_2}{\partial t} = \frac{\partial}{\partial y}\...

### Non linear system of equations with discretization on k-space

I want to numerically solve the following system of differential equations at the steady state: \begin{equation} \begin{aligned} \frac{\partial \rho_{11\mathbf{k}}}{\partial t} =& +\frac{i}{\...

### Interpreting multivariable root-finding results from Matlab's fsolve algorithm

Edit: So I was able to get the same value of r that's given, when coding up the sum of squares of function values directly in the script file, rather than on the Command Window. So, maybe there's a ...

### Derivative-free ill-conditioned non-linear least squares

I am looking for a package which can solve (non-linear) least squares problems without the use of derivatives (because of an expensive model), but which also deals with ill-conditioning well (such as ...

### Non-linear differential equation

I have this equation $$y\left(\dot y^2+1\right)=m + \Lambda y^3,$$ where $\Lambda=1.1\cdot 10^{-52}$ (Cosmological constant). I want to get the graph of the solution of this equation (2-parametric ...

### FEM, Direct Stiffness Method with a nonlinear displacement constraint in one node

i have a question about a FE problem im working on. I made a finite element model of an linear elastic block of material (double striped block) attached with a rigid connection to the environment (...

### Order of accuracy of linearised vs non-linear system

Does the order of accuracy of a combination of schemes applied to solve a system of non-linear equations, match those of the same schemes applied to the linearised version of the system? In other ...

### comparison of stability of two non-linear methods

I have solved a numerical problem using two different sets of non-linear governing equations. I want to get an understanding of the stability of the methods relative to each other. To do so, I solving ...
I have given $i_1$, $i_2$ and $\alpha$ which can be real or integer. How can I find the roots of: $$(i_1 + i_p )^{\alpha} - i_p^{\alpha} - (i_2 \cdot i_p^{\alpha-1}) = 0$$
