Do you think this article should include a simpler description? I.e. it should mention the existence of solutions for familiar differential equations (R -> R, Vector equations...)

It would be nice if this article were to explain itself in simpler language. To someone without a degree in mathematics it is very difficult to understand. Can someone include practical examples and an account of the significance? 03:47, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Is there any reason that the conditions could not be written more succinctly as  \begin{align}
\frac{\part^m u(x)}{\part n^m} &= f_m(x) \qquad && \text{for } m=0,\ldots,\kappa-1 \text{ and all } x\in S,
\end{align} ? Dewa (talk) 00:56, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
