Ask Heather #1

Dear Heather,
I'm trying to integrate a super exponential function in a convex domain, but I have a free boundary problem. What can I do?

-Virginia Boeing Small

Hey Ginny -
Free boundary problems can usually be fixed by putting up fences or making the superexponential functions wear electric collars. But those are negative reinforcement solutions. It's much easier if you make your convex domain a happy, peaceful, interesting place to live, and then maybe your super exponential function won't want to test the free boundaries at all.

Keep it fresh,
