## Introduction to Partial Differential Equations

##### A Computational Approach

This is the softcover reprint of a popular book teaching the basic analytical and computational methods of partial differential equations. It includes coverage of standard topics such as separation of variables, Fourier analysis, and energy estimates.

This book teaches basic methods of partial differential equations and introduces related important ideas associated with the analysis of numerical methods for those partial differential equations.

## Introduction to Partial Differential Equations

This textbook is designed for a one year course covering the fundamentals of partial differential equations, geared towards advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics, science, engineering, and elsewhere. The exposition carefully balances solution techniques, mathematical rigor, and significant applications, all illustrated by numerous examples. Extensive exercise sets appear at the end of almost every subsection, and include straightforward computational problems to develop and reinforce new techniques and results, details on theoretical developments and proofs, challenging projects both computational and conceptual, and supplementary material that motivates the student to delve further into the subject. No previous experience with the subject of partial differential equations or Fourier theory is assumed, the main prerequisites being undergraduate calculus, both one- and multi-variable, ordinary differential equations, and basic linear algebra. While the classical topics of separation of variables, Fourier analysis, boundary value problems, Green's functions, and special functions continue to form the core of an introductory course, the inclusion of nonlinear equations, shock wave dynamics, symmetry and similarity, the Maximum Principle, financial models, dispersion and solutions, Huygens' Principle, quantum mechanical systems, and more make this text well attuned to recent developments and trends in this active field of contemporary research. Numerical approximation schemes are an important component of any introductory course, and the text covers the two most basic approaches: finite differences and finite elements.

## An introduction to nonlinear partial differential equations

Uses an analytical and techniques-oriented approach to present a concise introduction to the subject focusing on time-evolution problems. Emphasizes hyperbolic and parabolic problems and includes a range of applications--chemistry, porous media, biological problems, traffic flow, reactors, heat transfer and detonation. Packed with exercises, examples and illustrations.

Flexible enough to enable instructors to adapt portions of the book to their own curricula, An Introduction to Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations works effectively in first courses on nonlinear PDEs, second course on PDEs, and in ...
