Bounds and Inequalities

  • J. L. Nowinski
Part of the Mathematical Concepts and Methods in Science and Engineering book series (MCSENG, volume 22)


For all the pessimism of Lord Russell, there seems little doubt that a search for an approximate solution, where an exact solution cannot be obtained, is both theoretically defensible and practically unavoidable. This fact, however, does not absolve us from the obligation of estimating the error of the approximation solution, either by a direct computation or, more often, by finding the so-called bounds. In this chapter, we devote our attention to the second question, by examining some methods of constructing bounds for solutions of boundary value problems.
