Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how numerical solutions of the nonlinear Huxley equation are obtained by collocation‐based method using cubic B‐spline over finite elements. Design/methodology/approach – For the numerical procedure, time derivative is discretized using usual finite difference scheme. Solution and its principal derivatives over the subintervals are approximated by the combination of the cubic B‐spline and unknown element parameters. Findings – The numerical results are found to be in good agreement with the exact solution. Also the method is very accurate and conditionally stable; the results are very accurate at a small h (discretization) of x so this method can be applied for any nonlinear partial differential equations. Originality/value – The paper demonstrates how numerical solutions of the nonlinear Huxley equation are obtained by collocation‐based method using cubic B‐spline over finite elements.
