AbstractThis paper is concerned with the approximate solution of a nonlinear mixed type functional differential equation (MTFDE) arising from nerve conduction theory. The equation considered describes conduction in a myelinated nerve axon. We search for a monotone solution of the equation defined in the whole real axis, which tends to given values at ±∞. We introduce new numerical methods for the solution of the equation, analyse their performance, and present and discuss the results of the numerical simulations.
