# ODE solution using Fourier series

Hello,

I am trying to solve first order ode () using Fourier Series. I wrote the code, but I was doing something, please idetify my mistake.

Fourier series:

by putting into original ODE. Here's the code:

clear all;clc;close all;

syms x

N = 3;

for j=1:(2*N+1)

xp(j) = simplify(-sym(pi) + (2*sym(pi)*(j-1))./(2.*N+1)); % Equidistance points

end

for k = 1:2*N+1

for l =1:N

a(k,l) = cos(l*xp(k));

b(k,l) = sin(l*xp(k));

end

end

one_col = ones(1,2*N+1);

sumab = double([a';b']);

A = (1+cos(x)).*double([one_col;sumab])'

x = (A\ones(7,1))

a0 = x(1);

an = x(2:N+1);

bn = x(N+2:2*N+1);

dA = diff(A);

% ODE

A_ODE = dA + A;

yxp = A_ODE*x

plot(xp,yxp);

hold on;

%% ODE45

[a,b] = ode45(@(a,b) -(1+cos(a))*b+1, [0 30],0); %to distinguish variable I choose x = a and y = b

plot(a,b)

Thanks

Are you sure that this is wanted?

a0 = x(1);

an = x(2:N+1);

bn = x(N+2:2*N+1);

dA = diff(A);

% ODE

A_ODE = dA + A;

yxp = A_ODE*x

plot(xp,yxp);

hold on;

%% ODE45

[a,b] = ode45(@(a,b) -(1+cos(a))*b+1, [0 30],0); %to distinguish variable I choose x = a and y = b

plot(a,b)

Your code does not contain meaningful comments. Guessing its intention is not reliable. Therefore it is hard to estimate, if something is wanted or a mistake.
