## jury problem

A differential equation solved numerically by a method of successive approximations that fits the solution to given boundary conditions.

Elliptic equations, such as the Poisson equation, lead to jury problems. A partial differential equation, such as the barotropic vorticity equation, may combine a jury problem and a marching problem.
