The presented paper examines a numerical method for solving Lane-Emden type equations based on Flatlet oblique multiwavelet properties. In this paper, using the Flatlet multiwavelet features, an operator matrix is created and then the Lane-Emden equation reduces to a set of algebraic equations. Also, comparing the results presented in previous articles, it is observed that this wavelet due to having different high ranks, has the ability to solve this problem more accurately than other methods.
