Calculus Programming

Wikipedia comments: "Boundary value problems (BVPs) are similar to initial-value-problems (IVPs). A boundary value problem has conditions specified at the extremes ("boundaries") of the independent variable in the equation whereas an initial value problem has all of the conditions specified at the same value of the independent variable (and that value is at the lower boundary of the domain, thus the term "initial" value)."

This section shows how to solve equations of the following form:.

Uxx = f(x, U, Ux, ...)

This is a general form of a differential equation. To solve with the boundary values/conditions, Udesired & Uend, in Calculus programming we replace the following code for the "call xAxis" statement in these examples:

Udesired = 1.23e-3:   Uend = 9.87e-3  ! Initial Conditions (BCs)
error = 0: U0 = 1
find U0 In xAxis     ooo     to match error

plus, add some error statements thru out

error = error + (U - ???)**2

This 'find' statement will vary the 'U0' parameter until 'error' equals zero. Thus meeting your boundary conditions.

Enjoy learning Calculus-level Programming!
