Abstract: This paper aims to find analytical solutions of some analytical solutions of some non-linear differential equations using a new integral transform ''Aboodh transform'' with the differential transform method. The nonlinear terms can be easily handled by the use of differential transform method. This method is more efficient and easy to handle such differential equations in comparison to other methods. The results reveal that this method is very efficient, simple and can be applied to other nonlinear problems
Keywords: Aboodh Transform, Differential Transform Method, Nonlinear Differential Equations
Many physical problems can be described by mathematical models that involve ordinary or partial differential equations. A mathematical model is a simplified description of physical reality expressed in mathematical terms. Thus, the investigation of the exact or approximation solution helps us to understand the means of these mathematical models. Several numerical methods were developed for solving ordinary or partial differential equations. In recent years, some researchers used many powerful methods for obtaining exact solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations, such as homotopy perturbation method [1-2], modified variational iteration method , non-perturbative methods , Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM) [5-6], and reduced differential transform method . the differential transform method has been developed for solving the differential and integral equations. For example in  this method is used for solving a system of differential equations and in  for differential-algebraic equations. In [10-13] this method is applied to partial differential equations and in [14-16] to one- dimensional Volterra integral and integro-differential equations.
New integral transform "Aboodh transform" [17-23] is particularly useful for finding solutions for these problems. Aboodh transform is a useful technique for solving linear Differential equations but this transform is totally incapable of handling nonlinear equations because of the difficulties that are caused by the nonlinear terms. This paper is using differential transforms method to decompose the nonlinear term, so that the solution can be obtained by iteration procedure. This means that we can use both Aboodh transform and differential transform methods to solve many nonlinear problems.
