Abstract. Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM) is an elegant technique to handle an extensive class of linear or nonlinear differential and integral equations. However, in case of nonlinear equations, ADM demands a special representation of each nonlinear term, namely, Adomian polynomials. The present paper introduces a novel MATLAB code which computes Adomian polynomials associated with several types of nonlinearities. The code exploits symbolic programming incorporated with a recently proposed alternative scheme to be straightforward and fast. For the sake of exemplification, Adomian polynomials of famous nonlinear operators, computed by the code, are given.
