ODE Boundary Value Problem Solver
Solver 
Description 

Solve boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations. 
BVP Helper Functions
Function 
Description 

Form the initial guess for bvp4c . 

Evaluate the numerical solution using the output of bvp4c . 
BVP Solver Properties Handling
An options structure contains named properties whose values are passed to bvp4c
, and which affect problem solution. Use these functions to create, alter, or access an options structure.
Function 
Description 

Create/alter the BVP options structure. 

Extract properties from options structure created with bvpset .
