boundary-value problem

A physical problem completely specified by a differential equation in an unknown, valid in certain information (boundary conditions) about the unknown given on the boundaries of that region.

The information required to determine the solution depends completely and uniquely on the particular problem. A great variety of meteorological problems are formulated as boundary-value problems.
See also initial-value problem.
