## Boundary value problem

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

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

## Lagrange's identity (boundary value problem)

In the study of ordinary differential equations and their associated **boundary value** problems , Lagrange's identity , named after Joseph Louis Lagrange , gives the **boundary** terms arising from integration by parts of a self-adjoint linear differential operator . Lagrange's identity is fundamental

## Aroostook War

undeclared confrontation in 1838/1839 between the United States and Great Britain over the international **boundary** between British North America (Canada) and Maine. The dispute resulted in a mutually accepted border between the state of Maine and the provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec

## Cauchy boundary condition

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

## Critical value

In differential topology , a critical **value** of a differentiable function ƒ : M → N between differentiable manifolds is the image **value** ) ƒ( x ) in N of a critical point x in M . The basic result on critical values is Sard's lemma . The set of critical values can be quite irregular

## Minimal negation operator

the terms are disjoint. The minimal negation operator ( mno ) has a legion of aliases: logical **boundary** operator , limen operator , threshold operator , or least action operator , to name but a few. The rationale for these names is visible in the venn diagrams of the corresponding operations
