Synopses & Reviews
Our understanding of the fundamental processes of the natural world is based to a large extent on partial differential equations (PDEs). The second edition of Partial Differential Equations provides an introduction to the basic properties of PDEs and the ideas and techniques that have proven useful in analyzing them. It provides the student a broad perspective on the subject, illustrates the incredibly rich variety of phenomena encompassed by it, and imparts a working knowledge of the most important techniques of analysis of the solutions of the equations.
In this book mathematical jargon is minimized. Our focus is on the three most classical PDEs, the wave, heat and Lapace equations. Advanced concepts are introduced frequently but with the least possible technicalities. The book is flexibly designed for juniors, seniors or beginning graduate students in science, engineering or mathematics.
Synopsis
Covers the fundamental properties of partial differential equations (PDEs) and proven techniques useful in analyzing them. Uses a broad approach to illustrate the rich diversity of phenomena such as vibrations of solids, fluid flow, molecular structure, photon and electron interactions, radiation of electromagnetic waves encompassed by this subject as well as the role PDEs play in modern mathematics, especially geometry and analysis.
Synopsis
Practice partial differential equations with this student solutions manual
Corresponding chapter-by-chapter with Walter Strauss's Partial Differential Equations, this student solutions manual consists of the answer key to each of the practice problems in the instructional text. Students will follow along through each of the chapters, providing practice for areas of study including waves and diffusions, reflections and sources, boundary problems, Fourier series, harmonic functions, and more. Coupled with Strauss's text, this solutions manual provides a complete resource for learning and practicing partial differential equations.
