A linear theory?

  1. Mar 17, 2008 #1
    How can we know a theory is linear. That is to say, if we want to prove that a theory is linear, what is the key points or the key parts that we need prove.
    Thank you!

    usually this means that the differential equation(s) that make up the theory are linear differential equations. E.g., the schrodinger equation.
