Partial Differential Equations

This is a free, online wikibook, so the content is continually being updated and refined.  According to the authors, "This book is intended as a Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) reference for individuals who already posses a firm understanding of ordinary differential equations and at least have a basic idea of what a partial derivative is. This book is meant to be easily readable to engineers and scientists while still being (almost) interesting enough for mathematics students. Be advised that in depth proofs of such matters as series convergence, uniqueness, and existence will not be given; this fact will appall some and elate others. This book is meant more toward solving or at the very least extracting information out of problems involving partial differential equations. The first... Show More
