Abstract:

In various fields of application, including radiative transfer and automatic control, there is a need to integrate unstable linear systems of ordinary differential equations subject to two-point or multipoint boundary conditions. Special precautions must be taken to prevent the deleterious effects of the instability from manifesting themselves. The use of imbedding techniques, Laplace transforms, and concepts from control theory itself can prove efficacious, as some examples in this memorandum show. Author
