Article

Summary

Linear self-adjoint multipoint boundary value problems are investigated. The case of the homogeneous equation is shown to lead to spline solutions, which are then utilized to construct a Green's function for the case of homogeneous boundary conditions. An approximation scheme is described in terms of the eigen-functions of the inverse of the Green's operator and is shown to be optimal in the sense of then-widths of Kolmogorov. Convergence rates are given and generalizations to more general boundary value problems are discussed.
