Abstract

We consider the analysis and numerical solution of a forward-backward boundary value problem. We provide some motivation, prove existence and uniqueness in a function class especially geared to the problem at hand, provide various energy estimates, prove a priori error estimates for the Galerkin method, and show the results of some numerical computations.
