This paper introduces a computationally rapid and effective approach for parameter identification in both linear and nonlinear boundary-value problems. The technique proposed evolves around application of the Galerkin procedure with a small number (N ≤6) of low-degree polynomial modes and employs the Newton-Raphson method and quasilinearization. The numerical results presented illustrate the power of the approach.
