Partial differential equations (PDEs) play an important role in the na tural sciences and technology, because they describe the way systems ( natural and other) behave. The inherent suitability of PDEs to charact erizing the nature, motion, and evolution of systems, has led to their wide-ranging use in numerical models that are developed in order to a nalyze systems that are not otherwise easily studied. Numerical Soluti ons for Partial Differential Equations contains all the details necess ary for the reader to ...

Numerical Soluti ons for Partial Differential Equations contains all the details necess ary for the reader to understand the principles and applications of ad vanced numerical methods for solving PDEs. In addition, it shows how t he modern computer system algebra Mathematica+ can be used for the ana lytic investigation of such numerical properties as stability, approxi mation, and dispersion.
