Provides a database of test problems for numerical and approximate methods for solving nonlinear PDEs
New to the second edition

More than 1,000 pages with over 1,500 new first, second, third, fourth, and higherorder nonlinear equations with solutions

Parabolic, hyperbolic, elliptic, and other systems of partial differential equations with solutions

Symbolic and numerical methods for solving nonlinear PDEs with Maple, Mathematica, and MATLAB

Some exact solutions, transformations and methods

Many new illustrative examples and tables

A large list of references consisting of over 1,300 sources
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.

The EqWorld website presents extensive information on solutions to
various classes of ordinary differential equations, partial differential
equations, integral equations, functional equations, and other mathematical
equations.
