Value Problems

Math Student to Give Lecture on Second Order Boundary Value Problems

Speaker: Samantha A. Major, NSU Mathematics Major
Date: Thursday, November 3
Time:11:30 a.m. -1:00 p.m.
Venue: Mailman-Hollywood Building | Second Floor Auditorium

"Continuous Dependence and Differentiating Solutions of a Second Order Boundary Value Problem with Average Value Condition"

Using a few conditions, continuous dependence, and a result regarding smoothness of initial conditions, we show that derivatives, with respect to each of the boundary data, of solutions to a second order boundary value problem with an average value integral condition solve the associated variational equation with interesting boundary conditions.
