Description from Back Cover 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. Introduction to Partial Differential Equations (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics series) by Peter J. Olver. 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.

With special emphasis on engineering and science applications, this textbook provides a mathematical introduction to the field of partial differential equations (PDEs). The text represents a new approach to PDEs at the undergraduate level by presenting computation as an integral part of the study of differential equations. Partial differential equations are fundamental to the modeling of natural phenomena, arising in every field of science. Consequently, the desire to understand the solutions of these equations has always had a prominent place in the efforts of mathematicians; it has inspired such diverse fields as complex function theory, functional analysis and algebraic .

Comprised of chapters, this book begins with an introduction to transformations as well as general ideas about differential equations and how they are solved, together with the techniques needed to determine if a partial differential equation is . Book Description. An Introduction to Partial Differential Equations with MATLAB ®, Second Edition illustrates the usefulness of PDEs through numerous applications and helps students appreciate the beauty of the underlying mathematics. Updated throughout, this second edition of a bestseller shows students how PDEs can model diverse problems, including the flow of heat, .
