### Approximate solution of Multi-Pantograph Equations with variable coe±cients via collocation method based on Hermite polynomials

#### Abstract

This research article presents an approximate solution of the non-homogenous Multi-Pantograph equation comprising of variable coe±cients by utilizing a collocation method based on Hermite polynomials. These orthogonal polynomials along with its collocation points transform the equation and the initial conditions into matrix equation comprising of a system of linear algebraic equations. Subsequently, by solving this system, the unknown Hermite coe±cients are calculated. To reveal the accuracy and e±ciency of the method applied, the approximate results obtained by this technique have been compared with exact solutions. Moreover, some numerical illustrations in the form of examples are given to exhibit the applicability of the proposed technique.
