Abstract

Solutions of elliptic equations represent steady-state solutions; i.e., solutions which do not vary with time. They often describe the asymptotic states achieved by solutions of time-dependent problems, as t → ∞. Physically speaking, all the “rough spots” smooth out by the time this steady state is achieved.
