Abstract : The problem considered is the application of a onedimensional maximum principle to second order, linear differential equations of the form u'' + g(x)u' + h(x)u = f(x) for a < x < b with associated general boundary conditions to obtain functions z1(x) and z2(x) such that z2(x) = or < u(x) = or < z1(x) on the closed interval (a,b). The functions f, g, and h are assumed to be bounded. We wish to determine the behavior of the solution u(x) on the closed interval (a,b) and also to obtain reliable numerical estimates of u. (Author)
