I would really like to know whether initial conditions given to a time evolution PDE has to satisfy the governing equations. For example, if I have to solve numerically an incompressible flow equation do I need to give initial solution for the velocity field which is divergence free so as to obey the governing equation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thanks in advance
