Comment on article status[edit]

I have some suggestions for improvements of this article: The general theory and application of the ADM should be discussed. Similarly, there is plenty of discussion about additions and modifications to ADM within the third example, but this should be generalized and summarized earlier in the article. This article still needs more citations and discussion about applications, as well as some references on limitations of convergence and applicability. The second two examples are also a bit heavy; I would recommend trimming both down if possible (e.g. simpler PDE problem). Overall this article is in a good state at this point. The illustrations are helpful and the background of the method is sufficient for a cursory understanding. Cheers! Rememberlands (talk) 23:37, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Don't see what the point of this "method" is if all it does is produce a power-series solution. Can't that be obtained much more easily using the Frobenius method? Most of the literature about "Adomian decomposition" that comes up on Google Scholar appears to be copy & paste papers written in poor English in questionable journals.
