In mathematics, the **Robin boundary condition** (/ˈrɒbɪn/; properly French: [ʁɔbɛ̃]), or **third type boundary condition**, is a type of boundary condition, named after Victor Gustave Robin (1855–1897).^{[1]} When imposed on an ordinary or a partial differential equation, it is a specification of a linear combination of the values of a function *and* the values of its derivative on the boundary of the domain. Other equivalent names in use are **Fourier-type condition** and **radiation condition**.^{[2]}
