Initial Value Problem
IVP

A differential equation or partial differential equation accompanied by conditions for the value of the function and possibly its derivatives at one particular point in the domain.

 

Differential Equation

y" + y = sin x

Initial Value Problem (IVP)

y" + y = sin x, y(0) = 1, y'(0) = – 2

Boundary Value Problem (BVP)

y" + y = sin x, y(0) = 1, y(1) = – 2
