Cauchy boundary condition print that page

In mathematics , a Cauchy (pronounced /koʊˈʃiː/ ) boundary condition imposed on an ordinary differential equation or a partial differential equation specifies both the values a solution of a differential equation is to take on the boundary of the domain and the normal derivative

Dirichlet boundary condition print that page

In mathematics , the Dirichlet (or first-type ) boundary condition is a type of boundary condition , named after Johann Peter Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet (1805–1859) who studied under Cauchy and succeeded Gauss at University of Göttingen . [ 1 ] When imposed on an ordinary or a partial

No-slip condition print that page

In fluid dynamics , the no-slip condition for viscous fluids states that at a solid boundary , the fluid will have zero velocity relative to the boundary . The fluid velocity at all fluid–solid boundaries is equal to that of the solid boundary . [ 1 ] Conceptually, one can think of the

Flood fill print that page

themselves into a corner. This is also a method for solving mazes. The four pixels making the primary boundary are examined to see what action should be taken. The painter could find themselves in one of several conditions: All four boundary pixels are filled. Three of the boundary pixels

Free boundary problem print that page

In mathematics , a free boundary problem is a partial differential equation to be solved for both an unknown function u and an unknown domain Ω. The segment Γ of the boundary of Ω which is not known at the outset of the problem is the free boundary . The classic example is the melting

Boundary layer print that page

In physics and fluid mechanics , a boundary layer is that layer of fluid in the immediate vicinity of a bounding surface where effects of viscosity of the fluid are considered in detail. In the Earth's atmosphere , the planetary boundary layer is the air layer near the ground affected

Stokes boundary layer print that page

In fluid dynamics , the Stokes boundary layer , or oscillatory boundary layer , refers to the boundary layer close to a solid wall in oscillatory flow of a viscous fluid . Or, it refers to the similar case of an oscillating plate in a viscous fluid at rest, with the oscillation direction

Boundary value problem print that page

In mathematics , in the field of differential equations , a boundary value problem is a differential equation together with a set of additional restraints, called the boundary conditions . A solution to a boundary value problem is a solution to the differential equation which also satisfies

Elliptic boundary value problem print that page

In mathematics , an elliptic boundary value problem is a special kind of boundary value problem which can be thought of as the stable state of an evolution problem . For example, the Dirichlet problem for the Laplacian gives the eventual distribution of heat in a room several hours after

Irish Boundary Commission print that page

The Irish Boundary Commission was a commission which met in 1924–25 to decide on the precise delineation of the border between the Irish Free State and Northern Ireland . The 1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty , which ended the Anglo-Irish War , provided for such a commission if Northern Ireland
