The objective of this paper is to obtain an approximate solution for some well-known linear and nonlinear two-point boundary value problems. For this purpose, a semianalytical method known as optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM) is used. Moreover, optimal homotopy asymptotic method does not involve any discretization, linearization, or small perturbations and that is why it reduces the computations a lot. OHAM results show the effectiveness and reliability of OHAM for application to two-point boundary value problems. The obtained results are compared to the exact solutions and homotopy perturbation method (HPM).
