The method consists of splitting the given equation into linear and non-linear parts, inverting the highest order derivative operator contained in the linear operator on both sides identifying the initial conditions and the terms involving the independent variables alone as initial approximation, decomposing the unknown function into a series whose components can be easily computed, decomposing the non-linear function in terms if polynomial called Adomian's polynomials, and finding the successive terms of the series solution by recurrent relation using the polynomials obtained (cf.
