Features

  • Gives students the necessary theoretical foundation and practical experience for solving analytical problems
  • Presents a variety of solution methods, including the separation of variables, eigenfunction expansion, Fourier and Laplace transformations, Green’s functions, and asymptotic techniques
  • Includes Mathematica® code that enables students to check the accuracy of their work without interfering with the solution procedure
  • Contains a wealth of worked examples and exercises—both computational exercises and standard problems not requiring a software package

A solutions manual and PDF projector files are available upon qualifying course adoption.

Summary

Solution Techniques for Elementary Partial Differential Equations, Third Edition remains a top choice for a standard, undergraduate-level course on partial differential equations (PDEs). Making the text even more user-friendly, this third edition covers important and widely used methods for solving PDEs.

New to the Third Edition

  • New sections on the series expansion of more general functions, other problems of general second-order linear equations, vibrating string with other types of boundary conditions, and equilibrium temperature in an infinite strip
  • Reorganized sections that make it easier for students and professors to navigate the contents
  • Rearranged exercises that are now at the end of each section/subsection instead of at the end of the chapter
  • New and improved exercises and worked examples
  • A brief Mathematica® program for nearly all of the worked examples, showing students how to verify results by computer

This bestselling, highly praised textbook uses a streamlined, direct approach to develop students’ competence in solving PDEs. It offers concise, easily understood explanations and worked examples that allow students to see the techniques in action.
