comment Determining the effective coefficient in a boundary value problem.
Oh, I see now... It was staring at me in my face and I didn't even realize it. So, using the derived formula, I can simply apply the condition $u(1)=1$ into the formula and solve for $-q_0$. I can't believe it was that simple! Thanks, PavelM.

comment Understanding the notation of the gradient of a vector function
Is the product in the notation $A\cdot B$ called a "tensor product" or a "tensor dot product"? Is there a special name for this product?

So then, $\nabla v$ is equivalent to the jacobian of v! That's cool!

comment Understanding the notation of the gradient of a vector function
According to the book, the final result $\sigma\cdot\nabla v^T$ is supposed to be a scalar quantity. Your final result seems to be a vector, if I'm not mistaken...

So the gradient of a vector is a matrix then, right?
