A new spectral algorithm based on shifted second kind Chebyshev wavelets operational matrices of derivatives is introduced and used for solving linear and nonlinear second-order two-point boundary value problems. The main idea for obtaining spectral numerical solutions for these equations is essentially developed by reducing the linear or nonlinear equations with their initial and/or boundary conditions to a system of linear or nonlinear algebraic equations in the unknown expansion coefficients. Convergence analysis and some efficient specific illustrative examples including singular and Bratu type equations are considered to demonstrate the validity and the applicability of the method. Numerical results obtained are compared favorably with the analytical known solutions.
