Heath Scientific Computing 2 / 45 Boundary Value Problems Numerical Methods for BVPs Boundary Values Existence and Uniqueness Conditioning and Stability Boundary Value Problems Side conditions prescribing solution or derivative values at specified points are required to make solution of ODE unique For initial value problem, all side conditions are specified at single point, say t For boundary value problem (BVP), side conditions are specified at more than one point k th order ODE, or equivalent firstorder system, requires k side conditions For ODEs, side conditions are typically specified at endpoints of interval [ a, b ] , so we have twopoint boundary value problem with boundary conditions (BC) at a and b . Michael T. Heath Scientific Computing 3 / 45 Boundary Value Problems Numerical Methods for BVPs Boundary Values Existence and Uniqueness Conditioning and Stability Boundary Value Problems, continued General firstorder twopoint BVP has form y = f ( t, y ) , a < t < b with BC g ( y ( a ) , y ( b )) = where f : R n +1 R n and g : R 2 n R n Boundary conditions are separated if any given component of g involves solution values only at a or at b , but not both Boundary conditions are linear if they are of form B a y ( a ) + B b y ( b ) = c where B a , B b R n n and c R n BVP is linear if ODE and BC are both linear Michael T. Heath Scientific Computing 4 / 45 Boundary Value Problems Numerical Methods for BVPs Boundary Values Existence and Uniqueness Conditioning and Stability Example: Separated Linear Boundary Conditions Twopoint BVP for secondorder scalar ODE u 00 = f ( t, u, u ) , a < t < b with BC u ( a ) = , u ( b ) = is equivalent to firstorder system of ODEs y 1 y 2 = y 2 f ( t, y 1 , y 2 ) , a < t < b with separated linear BC 1 y 1 ( a ) y 2 ( a ) + 1 y 1 ( b ) y 2 ( b ) = Michael T. Heath Scientific Computing 5 / 45 Boundary Value Problems Numerical Methods for BVPs Boundary Values Existence and Uniqueness Conditioning and Stability Existence and Uniqueness Unlike IVP, with BVP we cannot begin at initial point and continue solution step by step to nearby points Instead, solution is determined everywhere simultaneously, so existence and/or uniqueness may not hold For example, u 00 = u, < t < b with BC u (0) = 0 , u ( b ) = with b integer multiple of , has infinitely many solutions if = 0 , but no solution if 6 = 0 Michael T.
