Canonical boundary conditions.

  1. Mar 16, 2007 #1
    how do you prove/show that there really is a vector space defined by certain boundary conditions?

    unfortunatly this part of pde's was glossed over in my professor's lecture notes and I don't recall him talking about it in class.

    haha actually I think I just realized how to do it, you have to show that any two functions that any combination of funcions that meet the conditions must be a function that also meets the condition, which will be met with any set of boundary conditions where the function =0 at that point.

    af(0) +bf'(0)=0+0=0

    is this correct?
