Book Description

Differential equations play a noticeable role in engineering, physics, economics and other disciplines. They permits us to model changing forms in both mathematical and physical problems. These equations are precisely used when a deterministic relation containing some continuously varying quantities and their rates of change in space and/or time is recognized or postulated.

This book is intended to provide a straightforward introduction to the concept of partial differential equations. It provides a diversity of numerical examples framed to nurture the intellectual level of scholars. It includes enough examples to provide students with a clear concept, and also offers short questions for reader comprehension. Construction of real-life problems are considered in the last chapter along with applications.

Research scholars and students working in the fields of engineering, physics, and different branches of mathematics need to learn the concepts of partial differential equations to solve their problems This book will serve their needs instead of having to use the more complex books that contain more concepts then needed.

Table of Contents

1. Introduction of Partial Differential Equations. 2. First Order Partial Differential Equations. 3. Second and Higher Order Linear Partial Differential Equations. 4. Application of Partial Differential Equations.
