Many of the problems that occur in computational mechanics arelinear operator problems. And being linear operator problems, the existence and uniqueness of solutions is oftentimes determinable based upon the type of relationship being studied and the available data that defines the auxilliary conditions. Additionally, many nonlinear problems are approximately solved by assuming the problem to be linear for short periods in time and/or in space.
