Abstract : Initial value problems are studied numerically by means of two distinctly different types of boundary value techniques. The problems treated are those for which either asymptotic estimates or results about the periodicity of solutions are available. Nontrivial examples which contain singularities and/or nonlinearities are discussed. Also, an example is provided for which initial value techniques diverge while boundary value techniques yield accurate approximations. (Author)
