Summary

Includes nearly 4,000 linear partial differential equations with solutions

Considers equations of parabolic, hyperbolic, elliptic, mixed, and other types

Presents solutions of numerous problems relevant to heat and mass transfer, wave theory, hydrodynamics, aerodynamics, elasticity, acoustics, electrodynamics,
diffraction theory, quantum mechanics, chemical engineering sciences, electrical engineering, and other fields

Outlines basic analytical methods for solving various problems in science and engineering

Provides a database of test problems for numerical and approximate analytical methods for solving linear PDEs and systems of coupled PDEs
In total, the Handbook of Linear Partial Differential Equations for Engineers and Scientists, Second Edition
contains much more linear equations, problems, and solutions than any other book currently available.
New to the second edition

More than 700 pages with over 1,500 new first, second, third, fourth, and higherorder linear equations with solutions

Systems of coupled partial differential equations with solutions

Some analytical methods, including decomposition methods and their applications

Symbolic and numerical methods for solving linear PDEs with Maple, Mathematica, and MATLABŪ

Many new problems, illustrative examples, tables, and figures
To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the authors avoid wherever possible the use of special terminology,
outline some of the methods in a schematic, simplified manner, and arrange the material in increasing order of complexity.
