@inproceedings{Chapter5B, title={Chapter 5 Boundary Value Problems}, author={} }

A boundary value problem for a given differential equation consists of finding a solution of the given differential equation subject to a given set of boundary conditions. A boundary condition is a prescription some combinations of values of the unknown solution and its derivatives at more than one point. Throughout this chapter we consider the linear second order equation given by y ′′ + p(x)y ′ + q(x)y = r(x), a < x < b. (5.1) Corresponding to ODE (5.1), there are four important kinds of… CONTINUE READING
