Tridiagonal Matrices and Boundary ConditionsSIAM Journal of Matrix Analysis and Applications
- Boundary Conditions (Differential Equations)
AbstractWe describe the spectra of certain tridiagonal matrices arising from differential equations commonly used for modeling flocking behavior. In particular we consider systems resulting from allowing an arbitrary boundary condition for the end of a one-dimensional flock. We apply our results to demonstrate how asymptotic stability for consensus and flocking systems depends on the imposed boundary condition.
