Multipoint boundary value problems (MPBVP's) for ordinary differential equations arise naturally in technical applications. For a given dynamic system with n degrees of freedom, there may be available exactly n states observed at n different times. A mathematical description of such a system results in an n-point BVP. The discretization of certain BVP's for partial differential equations over irregular domains with the method of lines also forms MPBVP. In this paper we are concerned with finding numerical solutions of MPBVP's by converting these to equivalent initial value problems. © 1979.
