Explain End(V)[edit]

The statement of the theorem says that A_i is in End(V). That notation should be explained. LachlanA (talk) 01:31, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Done! The discussion of abstract vector spaces and endomorphisms is, in my opinion, pointless. I've replaced this by a statement in R^n or C^n. I've kept the discussion of abstract vector spaces and endomorphisms, but I've moved it later. The original page claims that theorem was valid in any vector space. I think it's only for real or complex vector spaces. Can anyone verify this? (talk) 13:12, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Relation with Cauchy problem[edit]

I'm not familiar with this topic, how does the Cauchy-Kowalevski relate to the Cauchy–Lipschitz? Don't they both address the existance of unique solution for the Cauchy problem? --Marco4math (talk) 00:16, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

wrong direction?[edit]

either I am completely confused or f goes in the wrong direction: should be there instead of

Link not correct?[edit]

The link to the reference Kowalevski, Sophie seems to be wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:03, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
