For a given differential equation of order (n > or = 2) or a system of differential equations, when the conditions are prescribed at two points we say two point problem. If the conditions are prescribed at more than two points, we say multipoint problem. For a given dynamical system with n degrees of freedom, there may be available exactly n states observed at n different times. A mathematical description of such a system results in an n point BVP. The discretization of certain BVPs for partial differential equations over irregular domains with the method of lines also forms MPBVP. dc.subject Boundary Value Problems en_US dc.subject Matscience Report 98 en_US dc.title Boundary value problems for higher order differential equations[MatSciRep: 98] en_US dc.type.institution Institute of Mathematical Sciences en_US dc.description.pages 154p. en_US dc.type.mainsub Mathematics en_US
