Green's Functions with Reflection Conditions

This Demonstration plots the Green’s function for the linear differential equation with reflection of order 1,
and order ,
where you can vary the parameters and . These equations are coupled with one of the following linear boundary conditions:
Order 1:
initial condition: ,
final condition: ,
periodic condition: ,
antiperiodic conditions: .
Order 2:
Dirichlet conditions: ,
mixed conditions: ,
Neumann conditions: ,
periodic conditions: ,
antiperiodic conditions: ,
The solution of the boundary value problem (differential equation and boundary conditions) is given by .
In the code, the expression for the corresponding Green’s function is given for the arbitrary interval .

The way to compute a Green's function for a problem with reflection is described in [1].
You can download a notebook for computing other Green's functions with reflection from [2].
