Abstract: A collocation procedure is developed for the initial value problem , , using the globally defined sinc basis functions. It is shown that this sinc procedure converges to the solution at an exponential rate, i.e., where and basis functions are used in the expansion. Problems on the domains and are used to illustrate the implementation and accuracy of the procedure.
