Boundary Value Problems
Boundary value problems (BVPs) are ordinary differential equations that are subject to
boundary conditions. Unlike initial value problems, a BVP can have a finite solution, no
solution, or infinitely many solutions. The initial guess of the solution is an integral part
of solving a BVP, and the quality of the guess can be critical for the solver performance or
even for a successful computation. The
bvp5c solvers work on boundary value problems that have two-point
boundary conditions, multipoint conditions, singularities in the solutions, or unknown
parameters. For more information, see Solving Boundary Value Problems.
