R.VahidiDepartment of Mathematics, Shahr-e-Rey Branch, Islamic Azad UniversityGH.Asadi CordshooliDepartment of Physics, Shahr-e-Rey Branch, Islamic Azad UniversityZ.AzimzadehDepartment of Mathematics, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad UniversityJournal Article20090403<span>In this paper, we present a comparative study between the Adomian decomposition method and two classical well-known Runge-Kutta and central difference methods for the solution of damped forced oscillator problem. We show that the Adomian decomposition method for this problem gives more accurate approximations relative to other numerical methods and is easier to apply. </span>http://ijo.iaurasht.ac.ir/article_513244_12050bcef34b25e39234b75b6f12d950.pdf
