Abstract

The theory of dynamical systems and their widespread applications involve, for example, the Lane–Emden-type equations which are known to arise in initial- and boundary-value problems with singularity at the time t = 0. The main objective of this paper is to make use of some mathematical analytic tools and techniques in order to numerically solve some reaction–diffusion equations, which arise in spherical catalysts and spherical biocatalysts, by applying the Chebyshev spectral collocation method. The proposed scheme has good accuracy. The results are demonstrated by means of illustrative graphs and numerical tables. The accuracy of the proposed method is verified by a comparison with the results which are derived by using analytical methods.
