Nonlinear Partial Differential Equat 2ND Editionby Lokenath Debnath
Synopses & Reviews
"An exceptionally complete overview. There are numerous examples and the emphasis is on applications to almost all areas of science and engineering. There is truly something for everyone here. This reviewer feels that it is a very hard act to follow, and recommends it strongly. [This book] is a jewel." ---Applied Mechanics Review (Review of First Edition) This expanded and revised second edition is a comprehensive and systematic treatment of linear and nonlinear partial differential equations and their varied applications. Building upon the successful material of the first book, this edition contains updated modern examples and applications from areas of fluid dynamics, gas dynamics, plasma physics, nonlinear dynamics, quantum mechanics, nonlinear optics, acoustics, and wave propagation. Methods and properties of solutions are presented, along with their physical significance, making the book more useful for a diverse readership. Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers, Second Edition is an exceptionally complete and accessible text/reference for graduate students, researchers, and professionals in mathematics, physics, and engineering. It may be used in graduate-level courses, as a self-study resource, or as a research reference.
