Algebraic Properties of Self-Adjoint Systems

1916
*
Transactions of the American Mathematical Society

The general definition of adjoint systems of boundary conditions associated with ordinary linear differential equations was given by Birkhoff.t In a paper of Bôcher,î in which the idea is further developed, there is obtained a condition that a system of thé second order be self-adjoint. It is proposed here to extend the discussion of this problem to the case of systems of any order. § A condition for self-adjointness of the boundary conditions is simply expressed in matrix form, without any
