Partial Differential Equations : Analytical Methods and Applications
Author(s): Victor Henner, Tatyana Belozerova, Alexander Nepomnyashchy
Partial Differential Equations: Analytical Methods and Applications covers all the basic topics of a Partial Differential Equations (PDE) course for undergraduate students or a beginners’ course for graduate students. It provides qualitative physical explanation of mathematical results while maintaining the expected level of it rigor.
This text introduces and promotes practice of necessary problem-solving skills. The presentation is concise and friendly to the reader. The "teaching-by-examples" approach provides numerous carefully chosen examples that guide step-by-step learning of concepts and techniques. Fourier series, Sturm-Liouville problem, Fourier transform, and Laplace transform are included. The book’s level of presentation and structure is well suited for use in engineering, physics and applied mathematics courses.
