Overview

KEY BENEFIT Emphasizing physical interpretations of mathematical solutions, this book introduces applied mathematics and presents partial differential equations. KEY TOPICS Leading readers from simple exercises through increasingly powerful mathematical techniques, this book discusses hear flow and vibrating strings and membranes, for a better understand of the relationship between mathematics and physical problems. It also emphasizes problem solving and provides a thorough approach to solutions. The third edition of Elementary Applied Partial Differential Equations; With Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems has been revised to include a new chapter covering dispersive waves. It also includes new sections covering fluid flow past a circular cylinder; reflection and refraction of light and sound waves; the finite element method; partial differential equations with spherical geometry; eigenvalue problems with a continuous and discrete spectrum; and first-order nonlinear partial differential equations. An essential reference for any technical or mathematics professional.

This book was a very poor choice due to the weak examples and ambiguity of the exercises. It is not often clear what the exercises are looking for, because of the vauge nature of the questions. The examples do not even come close to providing adequate information to complete even the simplest exercises. The lack of a solutions manual shows what I believe to be the authors lack of genuine concern for the students. He should either remove the 'Elementary' from the title or produce an adequate solutions manual.
