In this paper, we use a modified variation of parameters method, which is an elegant coupling of variation of parameters method and Adomian’s decomposition method, for finding the analytical solution of systems of fourth-order nonlinear boundary value problems. Examples are given to illustrate the implementation and efficiency of the modified variation of parameters method. Results obtained in this paper represent a refinement and improvement of the previous known results.


Key words: Adomian’s polynomials, variation of parameters method, systems of nonlinear boundary value problems.
