Fourth Order Runge Kutta method Detailed Step by Step Soln.

Use Runge-Kutta method of order four to approximate the solution to the given initial value problem and compare the results to the actual values.

y'=e^(t-y) , 0 <=t <=1 , y(0)=1 with h = 0.5(Interval)

Actual solution is y(t)= In((e^t+e-1).
