### Generalization

I would like to add a discussion of some very
general conditions under which differential
equations can be constructed (and how ODE's
and PDE's can be lumped under the same general
definition).

However, I'm not familiar with differential
equations in abstract spaces. If anyone can
point out some references I'm willing to
investigate this. Also if anyone is already
familiar with this subject and would like
