## Abstract

The Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) is applied to the nonlinear problem with ξ=0 : f(ξ)=1 and ξ \to +∞ : f(ξ) \to 0. The problem is associated with a closure model for the von Kármán-Howarth equation, in terms of the normalized two-point double velocity correlation in the limit of infinite Reynolds number. Though the latter differential equation admits no Lie point symmetry groups it is still integrable once for the values σ = 0 and σ = 4 by means of integrating factors. The case σ = 4 is the only case that is again integrable for the given boundary conditions. The key result is that for the generic case HAM is employed such that solutions for arbitrary σ are derived. By choosing the correct parameters in the frame of HAM, we obtain the explicit analytic solutions by recursive formulae with constant coefficients using some transformations of variables in order to deal with a polynomial type of equation. In the appendix, we prove that the Loitsyansky invariant is the conservation law for the asymptotic form of the original equation.
