Sturm-Liouville Theory and Boundary Value Problems

  • Jon H. Davis
Part of the Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis book series (ANHA)

Abstract

The boundary value problems of the previous chapter are distinguished by the fact that it is possible to derive more or less explicit solutions for the cases considered. A partial exception to this is the problem of the wave equation with an elastic constraint, for which the solution breaks the standard Fourier series mold.
