The bvpinit function is used to initial guess a boundary value problem. What numerical approach does it use? Shooting method? Is there any available documentation that describes the method used for bvpinit?

In bvpinit, the user just specifies a guess on how the solution of the boundary value problem might look.
A numerical method is not needed.

Thanks Torsten. So what is exactly the use of bvpinit? My understanding is that it takes an initial guess that is specificed by the user as input. What processing happens in this routine?
