Abstract : This section presents several model eigenvalue problems arising in physics and engineering. Specifically discussed are some important physical interpretations of eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. Some of the model problems discussed here will serve as illustrative examples in connection with the approximation methods considered later. A clear understanding of the fundamental ideas is presented, but not a detailed treatment. For a more complete discussion of the material in this section refer to Courant-Hilbert 1953.
