We find eigenvalue solutions to wave equations for continuous systems,in particular waves on a string. A discrete approximation to the continuous spatial derivatives is used to transform this into a matrix problem. The systems under study involve non-elastic contributions to the waves and the effect of different spatial boundary conditions on the eigenvalues and eigenvectors. An elastic spring boundary condition is examined in detail, and the effect on overtone frequencies is presented.
