In this chapter we intend to explore several numerical techniques for fitting a known function to a linear or nonlinear differential equation. This technique, known as quasilinearization, makes specific use of the underlying structure of the linear differential equation allowing us to approximate, numerically, both initial conditions and system parameters associated with the selected differential equation.
